Tonight I was doing the dishes and Cadence asked me to play with her. I told her I had to finish the dishes first, but she could sweep the kitchen if she wanted to help out. She politely declined and left the kitchen. A few minutes later, Coda was in her bouncy seat and she started to get fussy. I wear her in the Ergo sometimes when I do the dishes, but I was almost done and didn't really want to stop what I was doing to put her in it.
Cadence was playing in the living room, so I asked her to come entertain Coda while I finished. She hesitated before answering, so I added that I would pay her.
She walked in the kitchen and asked, "How much?"
I told her I could pay a quarter.
She sat there a couple of seconds and said, "Will you pay 2?"
She did a great job. She sang "I'm a Little Tea Pot" and then she made up songs about shapes. I have four sides the same length. What am I?...Square, I have two long sides and two short sides. What am I?...Rectangle, and songs about triangle, hexagon, and octagon.
I finished the dishes and gave her the two quarters plus a quarter tip (she really deserved more:-)
A few minutes later she came in the room offering to sweep the kitchen for another quarter to have a dollar. Smart girl, knows $.75 doesn't buy you much these days!
