“Mommy, do you know where the pliers are?”
This question, from Katie, is not a normal occurrence. I wasn’t sure whether I should be proud…or very very worried.
“Why do you want pliers?”
“Oh, we’re making necklaces and we need them for the ends.” Of course. Silly me for getting a bit excited at the prospect that she was spending her summer delving into electric circuitry.
“Did you look in the toolboxes?” I suggested.
“Oh,” She said, “OK.” With a shrug that seemed to say: I’ll give it a try. I’ve looked in all the reasonable places I could think of, why not the toolboxes.
She hasn’t returned, so I assume that she found one.
Maybe we’ll do circuits next summer.
