"Mom, I'm having a tea party!"
This is the announcement my four year-old son just made.
"Do you want to come?"
This was the next question. Of course, I said yes, so I am having a tea party and will finish this in a little bit. He runs quickly upstairs telling me he is getting the food for the party. This kid knows how to throw a party. He runs downstairs with "steak."
The tea party consists of Legos. I have a round Lego for a cup and a long red Lego for steak. He keeps telling me that one of the pretend people is spilling. My steak happens to be "lemonade steak." I believe I have gotten lucky! Although I've never had lemonade steak before, I think it is supposed to be delicious.
I haven't had a tea party in a while. I wonder if they do this at his school or what made him think about it. It is nice to take a moment and have a tea party though.
The party ends as abruptly as it started. My four year-old got up and ran out to see his older siblings. It was fun while it lasted!
On another note, my baby is sound asleep on my lap. I told one of my friends today that it is hard to believe that my last baby is one. She is still small, only 18 pounds, so she is still rear-facing in her car seat. I am sure she looks forward to being able to see out the front window.
My children make me happy. They keep me going.
