My Little Helper

Last weekend Eddie helped me plant up some mint, cilantro, and parsley. The poor mint plant was unplanted 3 times by my chubby-cheeked little helper...good thing mint is so robust! My dad saw these pictures and said, "Careful there Julie, Eddie's going to grow up thinking that ALL kids get to play in the dirt as early as 6 months old."

I had to stop and think about that...but he's probably right. Most kids these days probably don't "get" to play in dirt until they are much older.

Poor things.

Oh ouch — how does the trowel taste? Good thing it wasn't sharper! You are wonderful to involve Eddie in these wonderful moments of your outdoor life — great for him (as for you I'm sure). You make me deeply happy.

i think the replanting of the mint was totally worth it to have this cute little helper by your side!
