Bella’s new trick: walking backwards. I noticed her doing it this morning before breakfast, shuffling across the living room rug. How cute! After breakfast, I did it myself and she laughed and then backed into the bookcase.
My mother used to know to put all her house plants out of reach when our Jacob was coming to visit. His brothers called him an herbivore, an eater of plants.
My daughter foraged for wild strawberries in the mountains of Montana. I would train your daughter better.
Oh, if there were wild strawberries, I’m sure she’d find them, chanting “yummy, yummy” all the while. The problem is we have a paucity of edible plants in our neck of the woods.
At least she isn’t munching on the oleander…. that would necessitate a call to poison control.
Of course, if you want to volunteer to take my daughter to Montana so she can learn to forage properly, be my guest.
