    Is it bad for me to canvas with my 16month old boy.

    The current baby ******* is **** and ******* me an the missus of so thinking of throwing her and the missus working long days on the weekend, but that mean I can't canvas on my own.

    Do you think this is ok? Or to unprofessional?

    Also with regards to collections, I'd it ok to do this with the boy??

    What do you think??

    I use to take the kids out with me collecting, still get customers asking how me kids are and bring your son over when he has his school holidays while I clean the windows he holds the hose and pulls it around and chats to the customers. Not sure about canvassing with a 16 month old baby suppose he is in a pram but if I saw a Guy I dont know asking to clean my windows with a pram I think it was a bit strange. All you can do is try it for an hour and see if it works, if anyone asks could say your a family guy and want to spend as much time with your new son.
