Mind reader

Eleanor loves crumpling the paper in the bin we use for recycling. This morning she had pulled out every newspaper from the past week and was making her way through our junk mail. I opened up a big packet of coupons, knowing she would like all the little slips of paper and the colorful ads. As she sat encircled by paper, she picked out one coupon and held it up toward me. Her face was so earnest, as if she were handing me a great treasure.

I took it. A coupon for maid service.

How brilliant is this child? Greg should put her in charge of the Mother’s Day gift.
