through the eyes of a 6-year-old
Last night we finally broke down and turned on the heat for the first time this fall. We've been stalling as long as possible to avoid filling the oil tank. This morning Joshua went to get his shoes from the shoe basket by the door and said, "Mommy, this white thing making it hot" [referring to the radiator]. I couldn't help but laugh as I wondered how it must feel to discover indoor heat for the first time in your life, especially when you're as mechanically minded as Joshua.
