Silas has a construction scene book with reusable stickers depicting trucks, machines, and construction workers. Silas asked me about one sticker in particular showing a manhole with a worker peaking his head out. I explained to him that the worker was going to fix something underneath the ground. Ever since then, he's been fascinated with the idea of holes leading to underground zones.
A few days ago, he asked me to "be the cherry picker." This is a common request. He usually asks us to be the cherry picker when he wants us to pick him up and deposit him someplace higher up. In this case, however, he wanted me to lower him down the manhole, which, apparently, is our laundry basket's new identity. Once he was in the manhole, he said he was "a worker man" and proceeded to fix things. After a long day's work, he called over the cherry picker to lift him out of the manhole.
