It's Magic

Toys. Every toy known to people, or so it appears anyway. Our granddaughters have a playroom at their home which is full of toys, often making it difficult to navigate the floor with all the small pieces under foot. On a recent visit, I enlisted our oldest granddaughter, Sylvie to help me tidy the room so we could play there. She was dressed in a fairy costume.

 

"Ah man, I hate doing that," she said as she disappeared around the door.

"Five minutes and we'll be able to play in here," I said in my typical Nan fashion. "Come on now. Two of us will have this done in no time."

She appeared, worked for a few minutes, then left again. I continued to sort the items, depositing them in the bins lining the wall. Before long, only a few items remained.

Sylvie reappeared. "I found it," she said. I stopped to watch as she waved a stick with a star on the tip over the room.

"There," she said. "I just have to wave my magic wand and it's all done."

"Excuse me," I said, rather indignantly. I put my arms around Sylvie and tickled her as we sat on the floor.

Magic indeed.

  4. And bless her heart she was right. When she waved that wand the work WAS done.
