flowers from outsideflowers from outsideflowers from outsideflowers from outside
Flowers are blooming again, which means every time the girls go outside, they are out picking them. We have little flowers, petals, and rocks strewn all over the carpet, all the time and they keep gifting me tiny bouquets. It gets kinda messy when their collections get quite large, but it’s cute nonetheless. I like watching them pick the flowers outside. It reminds me of a funny story when I was a little girl…
I was in first grade and it was recess. My friends and I were behind the bushes picking flowers and leaves. The other girls were doing the talking and I was just listening. I used to be kinda shy back then, kinda like True, but not as extreme. They were talking about catching their parents doing you know what. Well, I had never heard of this stuff before, so I was kind of surprised. Mind you, this is just first grade and I was just six years old. There weren’t details, but they just talked about catching their parents, yada yada…
Well, fast forward a few days later when I am home watching a movie with my parents and a kissing scene comes on… they immediately cover my head with a pillow and then I blurt out, “Why?!! Cause they’re having sex?!!” My parents were dumbfounded. They turned off the movie and we had a little talk.
All this to say… I wonder what my girls are talking about when they’re picking flowers. I am pretty sure it is just all about She-ra and My Little Pony. At least, I hope.
