I Feel Like Tom Sawyer
Today I got Felicity and Kwamai both exceptionally interested in the workings of the washing machine. Felicity is already very possessive of helping with the laundry task, so she didn't need much prompting. But we observed all of the cycles and I explained what all the knobs were for.
Then I managed to get Kwamai very excited about using our push mower. He got tired out, but not until after doing quite a good job on the back yard. The structure of the mower has him pushing it with his arms straight above his head, though, not a simple manner.
Oh, and Kwamai cooked his own sausage for lunch.
I imagine myself ten years from now, living a life of ease...
