I asked Miss Alli, "Honey, would you like to go get some firewood and bring it in?"
She said, "No, not really." It was an honest answer. :)
She then said, "Mama, would you like to play "old fashioned"?
She is fascinated with all old, including our oil lamps, antiques and 1800's history.
So I said, "Sure!"
I had to pretend to be a store keeper. She needed to purchase 3 pieces of paper. I charged her 6 cents.
Then, I asked her, "And what is your profession?"
She replied, "Oh Miss, I sell firewood!"
Oh, "May I purchase 6 sticks of firewood?"
She said, "Yes Maam! and Happily ran out to bring in the firewood!" LOL
This a.m. I heard somebody putting away dishes from the dishwasher and putting what wouldn't fit in last night INTO the dishwasher. I thought, WOW! Miss Alli is up early. It is her week for dishes.
Instead, this is who I found doing all that work with a happy heart. :)
