I’ve already told you guys that my mama used to embrace the mess. Especially when it came to kids.
One of my (thousands of) happy memories while growing up is my mom letting me sit on the back patio and play with a bowl of flour and a bowl of water.
This weekend I was missing my mama terribly and Adrienne was being particularly wiggly…as one year olds usually are. I decided to pay a little tribute to her grammy with a good old fashioned flour + water (and some Israeli couscous) session.
I brought my book out thinking I would read a little while she played, but I’ll tell you what…she was so intrigued and inquisitive, it was utterly fascinating. I couldn’t take my eyes (or my camera) off of that curious little girl.
So here’s to flour and water…and to life being a little messy.
