Weeding Wisdom From a Ten Year Old

“Yes,” I say, “we are all going to work
in the garden this morning.” 
He slouches out and flops down in the dirt.
Half an hour of epic dandelion roots
("Are they edible? We should try them!") and 
“WOW!” sized earthworms later he pipes up,
“Working in the garden is more fun
when you have more people working together- 
it’s less like work and more like 
just doing something with your family!”

  1. Funny, my husband has the very same sentiment.

    Cuter from a ten year old, though. : )
