Therefore, when I suggested to my daughter that it was more reasonable for her to clean her closets than to expect us to have braces built under the floor, she agreed. To show that my heart ( and my mind) was in the right place, I offered to help her. We screed at the onset about saving the soft drink can with a French label for her friend wlio saves soft drink cans. Then we bogged down. She coiild't bear to part with a size-4 Bustor brown shirt. (It was my favorite when I was in kindergarten!) How could she give up the broI<en bird-on-the-a-cane she had won at the school carnival in first grade? And all her pictures from summer art class — "It was the year I broke my ankle, remember, and you had to carry me back and forth and..." Did I really believe she could give away those Barbie clothes' Did T really think she could live without all four leddy bears; the one with no ears,' the one. without a nose, the one with the broken eye and the one who sadly enough had been run over by a car? How (.ould I expect her to exist wifhout those 15 candy boxes filled with hair barrettes? Was I such a tyrant, to force her to throw away her collec-- tion of sand cf>stinj;s? Not that she cotilri tell what any of them represented, but, still... The little trunk \vilh the side caved in? Some dav perhaps she could fix it and cover it with wallpaper.
