It is America's birthday.
So, we are celebrating America.
Well, a long time ago another country called England owned America. It made the rules for the people who lived here. But they wanted to make their own rules so they had a big fight - a war - and they won. We call it Independence Day.
What is "independence"?
It is when you can make decisions for yourself. You can make your own rules.
Yeah, I want that!
Before you can have independence you need a job. What kind of job can you do?
I clean the toilets.
(Me) You do? When do you do that?
Oh, wait a minute. I don't clean anything.

This goes along perfectly with what she said the other night....Grace was playing outside on her bike and rode up to us. With her magic wand she said, "Magic, magic make my parents disappear." We asked her what she would do if we disappear. Her answer? Make my own rules.
