Who can pick up the most small objects with Mama’s tongs? Suddenly, clean-up time was anything but a drudgery!
(And, for those who are surprised and wondering: Yes, our boy is sucking a lollipop whilst cleaning up. And, no, this is not a usual situation in our home. Daddy had taken Nina out to do errands earlier in the day and didn’t know I always say “no” to the teller’s lollipop offer at the drive-through at the bank. So, Nina came home all excited to tell me about her discovery: bank people give out lollipops, and to let me know that she’d happily sucked her little bank treasure down to the stick. Needless to say, Luke was a little envious, and since he had “helped Mama” a lot while Daddy had been out, just as Nina had “helped Daddy” with the errands, we opted to go into our leftover Easter Bunny stash to give him a lolli, too.)
