Every day, things that my family does surprise me.
Some days, they're little things. Other days, they're....more.
A few days ago, we all went out for Chinese. We were shown to our table, and everyone went to sit, except for Adrian. He said to me 'Where are you going to sit, Mom?' I said 'Hmm...I think right here...' as I pointed to a chair. He pulled out the chair, waited for me to sit, and pushed my chair in as I did.
Today, as he and I were sitting outside on the porch talking about this, that, and the other, he said 'What time is it? Isn't it time for tea?'
'Tea?' I said. 'You want to have an English tea?'
Indeed, he did. So, we came in and made tea, and had tea and cake. The other two kids declined to join us, which, I think made him all the happier that it was just the two of us. We drank from the fancy teacups with saucers, too.
He says this is something we should do more often. I'm inclined to agree.
If anyone knows of any books that are kid appropriate about English Tea and/or recipes, send an email my way. My munchkin will thank you.
