Helping Hands

Elizabeth loves helping Daddy.  Daddy was fixing Grandma J's flower boxes tonight and Elizabeth had a very special job.  Aside from playing Goldilocks (trying out each and every one of the chairs in the house) and looking after her dolly.  Elizabeth carefully brought Daddy the screws that he needed, one at a time.  She'd carefully select a screw from the box, placing it in her hand and holding it tight.  Then holding onto Mommy with the other hand she'd walk to Daddy's work area about five metres away. 


"Dit do" said Elizabeth.  ("Here you go"?)  "Thank you Elizabeth", said Daddy.  Big grin and then grabbing Mommy's other hand Elizabeth charged back the five metres at a gallop to get the next screw.  Of course it would have been more efficient to move the box, but being experienced parents we know the value of free entertainment when we see it!

Wonderful! I'm curious if she had to differentiate between different screws? Anyway she'll be on to power tools in no time :)

So which chair was the best, Miss Goldilocks?

So glad to hear your parents are so experienced!
