"Mom, can I have a pear?" the oldest daughter asks.
"Sure, just a minute and I'll cut it up for you," her mama replies.
Mama sees that the laundry room light is on and goes to turn it off. She notices that the dryer is still full and takes the opportunity to take the load upstairs.
It's the youngest daughter's bedding, so mama decides to quickly make the bed since bedtime is quickly approaching.
Just as mama begins making the bed, she realizes she hasn't played her violin yet today. She meant to. Better do it right now, before the girls go to bed.
Mama stops making the bed and picks up her violin.
Five minutes later oldest daughter comes bursting through the door, "Mama, you said you would get me a pear!"
