Our daily schedule doesn’t vary too much, and we always make it outside either after breakfast or lunch as long as it’s not raining. We might play on the swingset or take a wagon ride or walk across the street to the lake – maybe throw rocks in or find ducks – but the girls always come back with a clutch of wildflowers and leaves.
Those girls and their flowers … well, you can see they can even sweeten a rainy day, one way or another! Toddler and I had this exchange on Friday morning as we prepared to take a weekend vacation to Ontario:
Toddler: “It’s raining. We can’t go to Canada now.”
Me: “Yes, we can still go.”
Me: “Because we have windshield wipers in our car.”
Toddler: [Laughs] “Yeah … but I don’t like the rain!”
Me: “Why not? It helps grow things.”
Toddler: “Well, that’s good … because I like bouquets.”
What girl doesn’t like a bunch of flower?! I’m teaching this girl early, I guess….
