We are in the middle of the “Christmas Rush”.
We have been selling toys for about 10 years.
It has been an especially busy year.
My darling 5-year-old, who has been part of the action for her entire life, has been trying to grasp the situation. She has been asking a lot of questions about the “Christmas Rush” and what it means. I keep explaining that it means lots of people are buying Christmas presents, and we are busy shipping them all out. You can imagine the host of questions that come next. 🙂
One day this week, after one of these discussions, she suddenly got this look on her face. She blurted out, “Oh! This is a TOY STORE?!”
I really couldn’t believe it. No wonder she was having such a hard time understanding! Butseriously, hadn’t she noticed all of the toys surrounding us… the toys on every shelf? What did she think when she was looking at these things?
Well, I asked her, and she very fluently explained, “Oh, I just thought this was an ‘ordinary’ store, you know, one that didn’t sell anything. But then I realized the MAILMAN came!”
I love that girl. 🙂
