kids will be kids
On a day to day basis, Patricia Jefferson’s biggest helper is her niece’s daughter Aryana.
One recent evening, Aryana wanted Patricia to bake a cake. Patricia was feeling tired but Aryana kept pestering her so Patricia finally relented and the pair headed into the kitchen.
Patricia needed help from Aryana to get the mixing bowls, measure the ingredients and crack the eggs.
At one point, Patricia needed a towel.
As a joke, a bad one, Aryana tossed the towel to Patricia across the room.
Thinking that Aryana was handing her the towel, Patricia turned as the towel flew past her.
Embarrassed by her prank, Aryana sheepishly grinned and apologized.
