Interlude: then there are the perfect mornings

002

This morning made up for the (admittedly funny) chaos of yesterday afternoon. Mimi wanted waffles and we didn’t have any in the freezer, so I made waffles and fried some turkey bacon. Mimi shared her breakfast with me. She is big on wanting to eat together.

Then we put on gardening clothes (for her, a light cotton sundress and crocs) and went outside. I watered the flower beds while she sniffed flowers and poked bugs and stuck her hands in the spray. Then we went into the garden to pick a mess of sugar snap peas, which are at their peak now. Mimi followed me, calling out when she found a pod, then pulling it off and eating it immediately. “They’re sweet, mommy!”

When we had a bunch–certainly all we can eat in a day plus some for the neighbors–we went inside and she wanted to sit down and eat peas together. So we did. And here is photographic proof that my two-year-old approves of last January’s idea to plant a picking-and-eating garden. I am gratified.

  1. Came back for another look at your amazing Hollyhocks! The peas look delicious too. i enjoy reading about your adventures with your adorable daughter. They are quite similar to my days spent with my newly 4 year-old granddaughter.! They are both growing up so very fast aren’t they.
