I guess I'm not doing such a bad job with my boys after all. They came in from playing yesterday, all excited, with big smiles and their hands behind their backs. "Mom, we have a surprise for you!" As most of you know, moms are rarely truly surprised. I suspected that my yard was missing a few pesky dandelions--something I had asked the boys to help me take care of, anyway.
But I really was surprised this time. Out from behind the backs whipped four HUGE fistfuls of tulips. I swallowed a yelp, gathered them up, and stuffed them into a pretty white pitcher. I prayed the deer wouldn't get them, but I guess it's okay if two cute boys want to spoil me a little.
