Here’s another oldie but goodie! ☺
The other week, we had to have our septic tank pumped. This meant that Dave would need to dig a hole and find the top of the tank so that when the pumper people came, they could do their thing. Dave went out and started to dig. Katie announced, “I’m gonna help Daddy!” and out the door she went.
Next thing you know, in comes Dave and he heads for the basement. He came back up the steps with Katie’s toy garden tools so that she really could help him!
Katie and Dave are out there digging away, when suddenly, Katie makes a beeline for the house. I didn’t think much of it, just figured she had to go to the bathroom. She comes flying in the door all out of breath and says to me, “I’ll be right back! I need to do something!”
As she went down the hall, I hollared out my usual “Don’t forget to flush!” (Little did I know that she had other things in mind instead of going to the bathroom!)
Next thing you know, here she comes! She is wearing a play hard hat that she got when she built her own bear at Boyd’s Bear Country, and she is wearing a pair of gloves. I say, “What are you doing?”
She replies, “If I’m gonna help Daddy, I need to have everything I need. Now I’m repaired for anything!” and out the door she goes.
She’s out there digging away in her “workman’s outfit” while I stay inside rolling with laughter over her “repairing” herself for work! What a kid!
