I always tell Baby she is helping Mommy. Today she helped Mommy weed the garden. Pretty much all the seeds we had planted have come up: zucchini, lima beans, radishes, cucumber, and cress. We bought our eggplant, tomatoes, and chilies from a nursery this year. We have only had to water the garden twice. Other than that, Allah has watered it with timely rain (definitely much appreciated).
Baby sat in Mommy’s arms and watched, Mommy pull up weeds. Then we came back to the house and she watched me dead head flowers. She reached out her chubby, little baby hand and plucked a perfectly good petunia, tried to shove it in her mouth. Mommy wasn’t so sure petunias were good for eating, so now she’s wearing it in her hair.
