Yesterday evening, I’m giving the toilet a quick scrubdown, and Alaythia is staring with rapt fascination. “Mommy, can i use that neat brush and practice scrubbing the toilet? You know, for when I’m a teenager.”
Today we’re at the gas station, and Alaythia says, “Can i squeeze that and fill our van up with food?” Her hands appreciated the little pump handle lock-on, and it was fun to explain all the details, quatities, and our mileage per gallon. For, you know, when she’s a teenager.
