I was just browsing through WordPress today and noticed the Ragtag Daily Prompt is “lamp”! It brought to mind a recent experience I just had to share with you:
My grandchildren, a 6-year old boy and 9-year old girl, spent the night with my husband and me last Friday. When it was time for bed, I turned on the lamp in the room where they each have a twin bed. It was a beautiful black lamp that went nicely with the decor in their room. Unfortunately, it didn’t work, so I pulled out an old lamp from the far corner of their closet. They both gasped, then squealed with delight! “Oh my gosh, that’s the coolest lamp ever”, my grandson said. “Can we sleep with it on all night long?”, my granddaughter asked. The old antique lamp was such a thrill I have decided they are both old souls at heart! I guess it is now the permanent lamp in their room!
