Something I really look forward to once a month is the Home Depot Kids Workshop. Molly has always taken an interest in helping me with little projects and stuff, so this was a natural fit for us. At one of the workshops, there was another father-daughter duo enjoying themselves. In most cases, it is the parents that do much of the assembling, but in this case the little girl wanted to be more involved. This is the conversation I heard:
Little Girl: “I want to hammer the nails by myself”
Dad: “Sure thing”
Little Girl: “But I want to hold the hammer alone”
Dad: “No problem, just be careful”
Little Girl: “Can you hold the nail for me?”
At that instant I looked up with a smile and the look I saw on his face was priceless. I knew exactly what he was thinking.
