As you know, if you’ve read many of my posts, Becca loves Little Einsteins. One of their episodes is titled “Farmer Annie,” and in the show, Annie and her friends help the three little pigs plant “Super Mystery Seeds” on their farm. When they plant them, they have to find clouds to make rain, wake up the sun, and sing love songs to the seeds so they will grow. Becca has been fascinated with this episode, and so a while back, on a whim, I bought a little $2 kit at Target – bucket, dirt, mini sunflower seeds. $2. I didn’t figure they would do much. But they have. We have given them water, sunlight, and LOTS of songs. And hugs. These seeds have received more love than I thought was possible. And they are blooming. Our little plant is going bananas. And she is so so so proud of her “Super Mystery Seeds” that aren’t so mysterious any more. What a fabulous project – never underestimate the power of simply planting a few seeds with your child. Yes, it takes time for them to sprout and grow, but it’s a wonderful lesson in patience – and learning that not everything happens in the blink of an eye, or the fall of a tear. Sometimes we have to wait for the good stuff. And there’s nothing wrong with waiting every now and then. Especially when it means I get to hear her sing love songs to her plant practically every day. Because there’s nothing cuter!
