Art Linkletter, who died last year at 97, parlayed a career in radio and early television into something remarkable by focusing on children and their take on the world.
I have a five-year-old friend. She and her mom had passed some winter germs back and forth, and yesterday was the mother's day to feel poorly. The little girl had told her dad about her mom's illness on the phone and as they said goodbye, he told her to take care of her mommy and maybe get her some breakfast.
My friend scavenged the kitchen, found a plate, and pulled some items out to make her mom a tidy breakfast. She carried the plate into her mom's bedroom:
Poptarts, a banana, and a Bud Light. That covers the basic food groups for a quick recovery, don't you think?
