In Case You're Wondering What I'm Good At
In an effort to manipulate encourage her to want to wear the helmet, I told her she looked like an expert bike rider.
"Do you know what an expert is?" I asked. When Natalie shook her head, I told her that an expert is someone who is very good at something and knows a lot about it.
"Mimi is an expert teacher, " I said, "because she has been teaching boys and girls for a long time."
"Daddy is an expert leader because he tells the guys in his office what to do." I added.
On a whim, I questioned her. "What is Mommy an expert at?"
She thought for a split second before her face lit up.
"Washing the dishes!" she exclaimed.
Will you all make sure my tombstone reads as follows?
Let all the lands know of my great skills with a dishwand and a sippy cup.
