It’s been tough to explain the flooding to my kids. But once my 6-year-old daughter Tess figured it out, and that kids like her were affected, she got to work.
Last weekend, she picked out two boxes of toys she wants to donate to kids who lost their stuff in the flood. She washed off some of toys with a bucket of soap and water to make sure they’re nice and clean. She and my wife combed out the hair on several dolls and gave them new hairdos.
I’m obviously proud of her. At this point, I’m not sure where or when that kind of stuff will be needed. But if anyone knows of someone who needs Tess’ contribution, let me know.
