I love that little kid!
I had to work last night for a while so Goodnight came with me to my office. She keeps busy with things I’ve stocked in my office for her to do and I’m never very far away.
I apparently didn’t unlock the drawer where I keep her things, so she had to find something else to keep her busy. I actually thought I unlocked the drawer, so didn’t know about it until I came back to the office.
She told me about my mistake, but we were ready to head out so I expressed my apology and it was a non issue.
But . . . . . when I got to work this morning I found a note on my desk. Here’s how she kept busy while I was away. The note on my desk said:
She actually drew me a picture and signed her full name, but I cropped the photo to protect her privacy.
Since I would toss my ‘boogie’ tissues the in the trash, I looked there. Sure enough – I was right.
Inside the note, it read: “Congrats! You figured out my riddle. You R 1 smart Gram. WOWZERS!” Then she ended with:
Good thing the custodian had already been in my office to take the trash!!!
I felt bad about not unlocking the drawer where her supplies are, but I made up for it. It was National Pancake Day yesterday and IHOP was giving free short stacks to folks until 10:00 last night. I took her out for a late pancake date. She was happy and funny all evening. When we finally got home I told her she had to start winding down so she could actually get some sleep.
She replied, “I have you to blame. I’ve been living with you a long time now, Gram and I have you to blame for my ‘happy’.”
I guess I could do worse . . . . . and I love it when I see life through her eyes.
