A few weeks ago, me and the kids planted flowers is small pots, and we monitored and tracked their progress. Melanie’s were the first to shoot up through the soil, and she was elated. David’s followed a day or 2 later, and Joey’s straggled behind until we almost gave up on them. But Joey, in true Joey fashion, kept pushing. “Mommy, just one more time, ok? Another day!” Finally, we saw his pushing up, up, up. Well, it came time to transplant them to bigger pots, as our flower garden area is no where near ready. Mom’s been lazy and not weeded it yet. We transferred them, and I worried they would die… The kids were a bit rough on them, but it was their project.
And they did survive. So now mom has to get the garden weeded so we can put planting soil in and plant our flowers in the ground. Well, guess that means I got 3 little worker bees who can help out! So we try to spend 30 minutes or more each day weeding our little garden area. What hard workers I have… When they aren’t throwing weeds with roots, dirt and all, at each other and me!
However, weeding our little garden came to a small break this week. Gramma had to have surgery and needs the help of the Queen Bee and her little worker bees. We arrived yesterday in full force, ready to jump in and help. Dinner was served, kids gave free cuddles and made gramma smile, and we camped out for the night to help where we can. Poor gramma is a bit sore still! And what busy little helpers they have been! Joey gives cuddles and likes to carry things to gramma and auntie, Melanie reads books and tries to be a little nurse, and David helps out but is more interested in flirting with the neighbor girl. Yes, my little David has a HUGE crush on the neighbor’s little girl.
They have helped me clean grammas house and have helped bring smiles. My little worker bees are so good at handling it all! They just LOVE to help out, and I am SO proud of all their help! I’m thinking when all is said and done, we’ll have an ice cream party!
