"M" and "B" were outside yesterday evening. I was inside cooking dinner with "C". All of a sudden, "B" comes running in with two yellow tulips. He's very excited and says, "Look mommy, I brought you some flowers." I said, "Thanks" and he went back outside. I didn't think much about it, I put them in a cup of water, and went on cooking. A few minutes later, he came back in with a huge handful of green stems and leaves. I finally ask where he's getting these and he says from the school. (we live beside of an elem school) I look outside and he has been playing in their flower garden (a different one from where he pooped the day before) and totally demolished their tulip plants that have just started to grow. I explained to him that he can't pull those up or play in them. He just looks up at me and says, "But mom, I just wanted to bring you some flowers." How sweet! I told him that was very nice of him and I really liked them, but he can't pull up someone else flowers. Now, if he'll only continue to give flowers when he's older...he'll have it made!
