Friday Fictioneers: Too Early


“What cha doing, honey?” The mother behind the camera asks her daughter.

“Washing my dollies’ clothes, mommy.”

“Oh? You’re washing their clothes?” The little girl nods.

I press pause on the video, look over at my little girl who’s silently coloring, and wonder. Is it too early to teach a 6-year-old to learn to do the laundry?

I hit resume on the video and watch the little girl pressing a few button on her battery-operated toy washing machine. Within seconds, the machine comes to life as the clothes begin to spin. Yes, I come to the realization, it’s too early.
