How Helpful

I couldn't stand the grime on my windows anymore yesterday. Laying on the couch looking out them all day made me very aware of their sorry state. I got up and quickly had Heidi help me wash the three most visible ones. Just as I was finishing, I turned to see Heidi running her hand over a freshly washed pane. I had known it would happen, but laughingly said, "Can't they stay clean for at least five minutes?"
"Oh, okay, Momma," came the reply in her sweetest, most compliant voice, "You tell me when it has been five minutes and then I will touch the windows."
