“Happy Mother’s Day,” said Annie, seeing her mother, Mother Elf, coming down the stairs, with a basket of a laundry.
“Oh Annie!” exclaimed Mother Elf. “Thank you so much!”
“Let me take that laundry basket,” said Annie. “I can do the laundry.”
“There is quite a bit to do,” said Mother Elf. “I appreciate the gesture, though.”
“I am going to do the laundry,” said Annie. “I know how to do it. You taught me.”
“I don’t know,” said Mother Elf.
“Mom,” said Annie. “You know I know how to do the laundry. You have to trust me. What would happen if you ever got sick?”
“Okay,” said Mother Elf. “You are right. I do have to trust you and yes, I do know you can do it.”
“Okay,” said Annie, taking the laundry basket from her mother. “Now, you go relax.”
Mother Elf went into the living room and curled up with a good book, while Annie put the first load in the washer.
“My little girl is growing up,” said Mother Elf, enjoying her Mother’s Day.
