What happened to my tulips?


Granted, they would have died on their own in another week or two, but seriously! I nearly had a heart attack when I saw them. And I asked the kid if he'd touched the pretty red flowers. His response: "Yeeeeeeeeth." Accompanied by a sweet, sly smile. I managed to take the time to explain that we do not touch those flowers unless Mama says it's okay, without getting upset. That was WAY harder than you'd think. They were such pretty tulips!

I think you handled that well. It could have been worse. He might have tried jumping off the roof with plastic bag parachutes.

Teach him to pick the yellow dandelions instead :-)
