(another post on those grocery store cars later, am I the only mom who tries to avoid them at all cost??) and take as many as he wanted, I let him put them in the bag, and decide exactly the perfect spot in the cart for them. He decided to put them on the seat right next to him, he was very excited ( ps..he decided on about 10 beans).
I thought it was odd, but went about our grocery shopping, with the beans never to be thought of again until Saturday morning. Liam woke up, and out of the blue, said, "MT BEAAANSS!!! We gotta Plant my magic beans" Grant and I looked at each other and absolutely melted...it was so sweet, he didn't want the beans to EAT...DUH!! he wanted them so he could PLANT them and grow a magic beanstalk!! I asked him what would happen if we planted his magic beans..he told me that it would grow very tall, and there would be treats and candy at the top....just like on Max and Ruby ( Yikes..too much TV??) SO, we went planting :)
On a magic bean mission!!
He needed just a little help from daddy...
He founds the perfect spot! Not in the garden ( my suggestion) but right next to the driveway :)
He dug, and buried, and watered...
It was a lot of work for this little guy...and we let him do it by himself unless he needed our
help. It was so cute..
AHHH..a very happy boy ! Magic beans planted..now all we do is wait :)
The sweetest thing about this, is that every single morning, he asks to go check on his magic beans, and every morning, I take him out there, and we check. I explain that it takes a very long time for an entire beanstalk to grow, and also reminded him that sometimes, if it doesn't get enough sun, a big beanstalk wont grow, but the magic powers will leave a little candy right in the exact place that you planted them :)
I love being a mommy. Its the best gift in the world. Its the moments like this, that reminds me that there is a balance to everything.
Happy Hump day Everyone.
