No, I'm not talking about how I encourage my children, this is a story of how my 4 1/2 year old was trying to encourage me.
It started when I was cleaning up the pieces of a magnetic puzzle we keep on our refrigerator. I decided to put the puzzle together but it took some thinking because the images weren't all oriented in the same direction. After I finished she told me, 'I knew you could do it' (I tell her this when I've denied her assistance with some task and she does it on her own). I thanked her for encouraging me. She asked what encouragement means [excuse me, no I don't want to install software from CrazyWinnings...gosh, you'd think the marketers would come up with a more palatable title for their website] and I bumbled out some definition and examples. She must have gotten the general idea that 'you can do it' is encouraging.
Later that day when I was on the computer, Suzanne kept popping by saying 'you can do it, mama.' Well, I could do it, if you'd stop interrupting me...
[P.S. No porn pop-ups since our last installation of super adware zapper, but we still get some ads. Can I tell you how glad I am to see that they're for mortgage refinancing? BTW, no one commented on my film reference to Japanese steel...I'm disappointed.]
