The Lemon Tree And Me…
Yes, we are on the topic of citrus again…I am sorry I just can’t help myself! If you missed the other two posts on this subject, they will be listed on the bottom of this post. The little man took to the beautiful fruit as much as his Grammie and I HAD to show you what his routine is concerning this fruit. First, of all you see how low to the ground they hang, this doesn’t help matters. Very close for little hands to reach and pick one off.
Little Man’s mother told me that he won’t stay AWAY from the lemon tree. No amount of talking will work, he toddles right back to it again and again. Grammie says, “He is Eager.” Mommy thinks he is obsessed♥ I made this photo collage so you can see the steps he goes through. Can you see the reaction on his face when he takes a BIG bite? Wouldn’t you think this would be enough to deter him? NO! He goes right back and does it again! Of course, I think it is adorable and keep laughing very hard and his mother just shakes her head.
Finally, we are able to move him away from the tree, but wait…the lemon has to go with him. I suggested to him that he put it in his bicycle trunk. As you can see from his reaction…he thinks this is a good idea☺The trunk will be a safe place for his lemon.
He had one more thing he had to show his Grammie on her first day at his house. His new fort with a slide attached. Mommy puts him at the top and says, “Are You Ready?” He lights up…Ready… Set…GO!” He pushes off and away he goes. You can see the happy reaction.
The boy has no fear…coupled with a lot of JOY!
As I look over these pictures I was thinking…Why can’t adults take the lemons in their life and still have joy? We can learn so much from children.
My husband just walked into the office and says, our neighbors just dropped off fresh grapefruit and lemons from their trees! Oh be still my heart….we love you J & J♥ What timing is this? I speak of Citrus and it comes forth…
