Too Big

The big kids had t-ball and baseball practice yesterday. The field is right next to a playground that Blossom loves to use while practice goes on and on and on. I bring a lawn chair and sit between the field and the playground so I can keep an eye on everyone. She runs and plays, picks flowers for me, hangs like a monkey - all things that growing kids like to do at the playground! But, my favorite is when she slows down a bit like she did yesterday. 
She came over and climbed up in my lap and sighed, "This is so fun, Mommy." 

I smiled and gave her a big squeeze. "I am glad you like it! Do YOU want to play t-ball later this spring?" 

She turned and looked at me with the most confused look on her face. "I don't want to play t-ball." 

"Oh, you don't? Well, maybe when you get bigger?" 


I sat there a minute and then said, "Well, is there something that you do want to play now or maybe when you get a little bigger?" 

She hardly missed a beat and said, "I just like to play with my Polly Pockets at home, Mommy." Then she was off like a rocket to pick me some more weeds flowers.


Thanks for jumping in and leaving your thoughts!!

I sure like to know who enjoys playing around the treehouse!
