water in a vase

March 13, 2007 at 11:38 pm 3 comments

Caleb picked flowers today–little bitty yellow daffodils– and brought them in the house. He put the flowers in a little bud vase and gave them to me. (I wonder if he remembers doing this with Abby 2 years ago this same third week in March…)

He also put some of the flowers in a plastic measuring cup from Mary’s toy kitchen and put those in her room. When Mary discovered them, she was quite pleased, saying “Oh pretty!” She promptly took the flowers out of the cup, laid them carefully on the nightstand and then drank the water.

Then she told me that she drank the water.
