We played for a bit and then I asked you if you wanted to help me make pasta sauce. Stir the "soup"...yes, yes! We went to the yard and I let you cut some basil and parsley. When we got inside you sat so sweet and still on the counter picking the leaves off the herbs for me. Happily working away, content to just be involved.
It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon with you and celebrate the last of your 2-hood. You are so sweet and charming. You take your time and think about things before jumping right in. And, as long as you can help, you don't really seem to mind what it involves. As we were on our way out the door to pick up Maggie, I accidentally bumped you, knocked you over, and caused you to hit your head on the wall. I expected a flood of tears and drama, but you snuffled a bit, looked up at me and said very innocently "Mama, you got to watch out for me, k?". You bet I will, bud....forever and ever.
