I Will Sell This House Today

My son has become the world's most charming realtor.

For the past few weeks he has been asking all about why we're selling the house. And every time we have to leave he asks about the people coming and if they're going to buy the house. Because of some unplanned situations (like the realtor who showed up AN HOUR AND A HALF late today, and just expected us to vacate as if I hadn't just put dinner for my three small children on the table grrrrr!) there have been a few occasions where we are still in the house when people come through to see it.

And that's when the magic happens, people. Sam starts flashing his mega-watt smile and offers to give tours, starting with his bedroom. Which is awesome, don't you know? And did you see my Spider Man poster? And where I keep my games?

We had some stragglers from last weekend's open house due to daylight savings, and Sam was all, 'This is our living room! Isn't it great!??!?' He even added several sweeping arm gestures for emphasis. Naturally, everyone loved him.

I'm telling you, we should stick around during showings. I think this kid could close the deal!

Except they might be disappointed when he doesn't come with the house! :-) I remember I wanted to buy a house when we were looking (I was 5) because it had a dolls house. I was disappointed when my mother explained that the dolls house would go with the other furniture.
