Grand Daughter keeps A Secret!

The flower girls came over to our house to play with my visiting grand daughter, so they did not immediately get to the back yard, and therefore had not discovered the Gnomes clothes line. Later on in the day my grand daughter remembered this and suggested that they go out side and play. It wasn't too long before they all came running up and telling of the discovery of the Gnomes clothes line with a quilt and pajamas hanging on it. They were so excited that they forgot to read at the note. They all said at once, "and there's a note too". To that I asked, "whats the note say"? They looked at each other and turned around and ran back to the Gnome door yelling, "we forgot it".
Later my grand daughter (10 years old) said to me, "pa pa they really do believe there are Gnomes living under their deck". To this I breathed a sigh of relief. My grand daughter, the one who has said she cannot keep a secret; had kept one.

Tonight I just have to leave this note for the girls.

That's a great idea, Tom. Keep on reinforcing that the cat is doing good and that he's there to protect them and not to cause them harm.

What do the flower girls parents make of this? If I were them, I'd be thrilled. Imagination is a wonderful thing and should be nurtured...if used in a positive way, of course. And personally, I think this is all VERY positive!

Someday I will have to do something like this with my grandkids when they are here visiting. It will be so fun!

I'd be checking, myself. Wouldn't this be fun for us "oldies" as well? I wonder if I can talk my neighbor into doing this for me. lol
