An event we had last week is a good example. This one little girl (aged about 4) sat beside me coloring the whole time. We became friends. Before she left, she said to me: "Thank you for having me. I had fun! Now I'm gonna go poop."
That cracked me right up. I hadn't laughed so hard all week!
Then tonight we had a Star Wars event with all sorts of activities for young children . I manned a table where we made light sabers out of glow sticks, cardboard toilet paper rolls, and duct tape. Here's a kid named George (that's been coming to our store since he was a toddler) doing a Jedi pose with his finished light saber.
|The force is strong with this one.|
She also put lipstick on him. Ruby clearly believes in gender equality for robots!
I'm so thankful for these rare moments of fun at work!
(And before anyone asks, both of these kids' parents gave our store written permission to use their images on social media....so I feel perfectly fine sharing them here on the blog).
