Sowing the Seeds of Love

On the way home from dinner, Connor (age 3) had a cup full of M&M's as his "Messert".

From the back seat of the mini van Connor started by saying, "Mom, M&M's don't have seeds!"

Wondering where he was going with this line of thought, I agreed with him, that M&M's indeed, have no seeds.

Connor continued, "Mom, we should go to the store, and buy M&M seeds, so we can plant them in our back yard. When they grow, we can make our own baskets, to go pick them up, and eat them. And then, we can buy Doodle Berry seeds, plant those, and grow a Doodle Berry Tree."

Wow! The creativity of a 3-year-old brain! All this came from planting a raspberry bush on the side of our house this spring, and watching "Wow Wow Wubbzy" on television. This particular episode of a television show has sure inspired him to love "Doodle Berries" - as he dubs the Captain Crunch "Ooops All Berries" version! He wants to plant them, like Wubbzy did in the show. I wish it worked that way!

I need to sow more ideas in his cute little head for creative things he can actually grow. We will be planting some little strawberry plants tomorrow. I love this kid, and need to show him more!
