The other evening, my 4-year-old daughter ran ahead of me to her bedroom, saying, "Let me open the door for you and turn on the lights." Then, she proceeded to do just that.
I said, "How nice of you, sweetheart."
She responded. "Yes, Mommy, I have to help you because you're soooooo old. It's important to help old people."
I am 35, in case you're wondering.
Well, I guess that lesson's learned.
