Are they still here?
Posted April 6, 2010on:
B’s grandparents were here visiting for Easter and brought with them a super-cool new tool bench with about two dozen tools, a tool box, plastic nuts and bolts and screws, tool belt, hat and even fake wood for building. B has been thrilled with his new workshop and playing with it all the time.
The grandparents left this morning, after we dropped B off at preschool together.
B came running in the back door at the end of the day: “I have to see if they are gone or if they are still here!”
Aww, I thought, he is looking for his grandparents. Until he exclaimed, “They’re still here!!!” and revved the batteries on the plastic drill.
He had been contemplating all day whether the grandparents were taking the tools back home with them, and he delighted anew in their wonderful gift.
