This is how they start out, isn't it amazing how they end up!!
So I finally joined all the "good mothers" and took my kids to pic strawberries at the patch.
It was fun watching Ezra search for each little treasure. Then pretty much squish each one as he picked it with the heavy hand of a three year old. After a while he began to learn how to be gentle. He actually ended up with a couple pounds of edible strawberries. The funny part is when we got home I set the bag of fresh hand picked goodies on our front steps while we played outside for a few minutes and our precocious cat, Storm, made a bed for himself on the bag and squished almost every one. So I froze em' for smoothies, not a total loss.
Its amazing how getting your child involved in the process changes their opinion. before this day he said "I don't like strawberries."
At the end of our strawberry adventure he said happily " Pic'n strawberries makes me feel like a man!" Oh Ezra!! I love my little man!!!
