Looks like the Trump women aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty!

On Sunday, Ivanka Trump posted a video to Instagram showing her oldest child, daughter Arabella Rose, on a golf course. In the clip, Arabella is sitting in the driver’s seat of a backhoe, while safely being instructed on its functions by an adult leading the operations.

“Arabella is getting her first lesson operating a mini excavator,” Ivanka, 34, wrote next to the clip of her 5-year-old daughter learning the ropes. “This brings back so many great memories from my own childhood!

“I love seeing how excited she gets, learning new things. #LikeMotherLikeDaughter,” the businesswoman and fit mom of three added.

And of her only daughter, Ivanka says she already has a strong personality.

“Arabella is fiercely independent, and was always like that,” she told PEOPLE in July. “And all the parenting books told me she would experience extreme separation anxiety and would cry every day when I leave her for so much as 30 seconds.

“And she just never did. She was very comfortable,” Ivanka added, joking, “She all but told me to not let the door hit me on the butt on the way out.”

I’d rather read more articles like this about productive and moral families instead of the Kartrashians. You cannot knock hardwork and instilling that in the next generation. I’d rather a parent teach this instead of how to take nude selfies. If you don’t like the Trump’s then why are you clicking the article. If I don’t like a headline or a celeb I don’t waste my time reading the article or clicking to comment.
