I did a little garden work today.
Planted some flowers to spruce up the yard.
And I had a little helper.
It wasn't this one.
He has busy having fun playing.
It was this one.
She is quite the helper.
If I planted something, she would help me by pulling it back up.
I mean it wasn't in that good of a spot.
And if I made a pile of dirt, she would taste it.
You know just to see if the plants would be happy in it.
She'd start crying, since in fact, dirt does taste bad
So I would stop planting and wash out her mouth with the cold hose.
So she'd put a new pile of dirt in her mouth.
It might taste better the second time.
Or the third.
But in fact.
It's still dirt.
Just so you know,if you are thinking maybe I'll do some yard work while the kids play around me with all their fun toys - it'll be a great way to accomplish things and send time together outside. Enjoying nature.
It doesn't quite work out that way.
But we had some fun anyway.
