Expect the expected

“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.
