While C was trying to help me plant tomato seeds on Sunday, S stepped in to distract him with a new project – the peanut-butter smeared, birdseed-covered cardboard tube. I think every kid ends up doing these in school or something, but we’re starting early, mostly because he needs new distractions all the time.
It went as expected – messy. He definitely ate as much peanut butter as he smeared, and may have eaten some birdseed too, but I wasn’t watching that closely. It’s all stuff we’d eat anyway. But as long as he had fun (and left me alone long enough to finish planting), well, that’s what matters, right?
