When you walk into the store, get a small basket just inside. Put these 3 things in the basket. Take them to the front and pay for them. Charge them to me. Our charge number is 127.
These are my instructions to my 4 year old peep. Why?
I am exercising her memory, expanding her world, and giving her freedom.
I sit in the car and wait for her to walk out...with her bouncy blonde ponytail and toothy grin.
After she does this a time or two...I'll give her 5 things to remember to get.
She went on to save the whales, crusade on behalf of no more elephant ivory, and start a spirit squad in her backyard all the while planning a "BIG SALE ON THE PORCH" and writing a book about squirrels and birds.
Well, no wonder.
Today, she is a landman. She is a single mother of her clone. She is about to purchase a home. A nice one. She is about to go to Rome. Alone. She has issues and struggles every day. She never says a bad word. She is a light of energy. And she is indeed...a Road Scholar.
I am glad. I want to be on her road. It's a good one.
