My 6-year-old niece Lexi was one of the six kids who was at our house for Easter. My 13-year-old niece Mackenzie organized an Easter egg hunt. She hid the eggs for the littler ones to find. At the end of the hunt, Lexi, who is very shy, came up to me and quietly said, “Aunt Kris, I’m the champion. I got the most eggs.” And indeed she did…..
After I told her how impressed I was with her hunting abilities, she said, “Aunt Kris, could you send a picture to Pops showing him how many eggs I found?” Of course, I told her I would be happy to do so. Pops, by the way, is her name for her grandfather, my brother David. I immediately sent a photo to him.
The reason this made me smile was because it so happens that Pops was sitting about 10 steps away from her. I guess in this digital age, if there isn’t a photo, it didn’t happen. Even if you’re only 6 years old.
Have a great weekend.
