Pearl decided yesterday that our car needed a wash.  She thought that today would be a good time to do it.  So this morning, the Dad got everything ready and called her.  But no, she had changed her mind and didn’t want to get wet.  So Fainjin went out to help instead.

They had great fun.  The Dad soaped and rinsed, rubbed and polished, and Fainjin contributed to the effort by doing all the sound effects and “flavouring” the washing water.  He added leaves from the pohutukawa, purple flowers from the garden, some twigs and grass, and eventually a soccer ball.

Then he decided he was finished, and played on his trike fire engine until it was time for lunch.  I have to say, I’m kind of glad he hasn’t decided to “help” with the housework yet.
