Henry was so sweet this morning

I was telling the kids that even though I do daycare I have no kids in my care right now. Elliott piped up that I have 3 kids. Them.

True, I said, but I don't get paid for them. Henry wandered off and came back and with his halting language explained that if I needed to get paid then would I accept this from him. And he opened his hand and showed me a penny he'd fetched from his piggy bank. Awww. I hugged him and told him he could keep his penny. Because on days like this I'm happy to take care of them for free.

Now don't get me started on the many (many) days I'd happily snatch your hand off for my full daycare fee of $35 per day for their care and feeding...
