“One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.”
-Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
There are two very important things to remember when you go on a strawberry picking field trip:
|What we should have been doing.|
2. I don't think kids should be seen and not heard. I do not think my son was talking too much (upon further reflection, at the time I wasn't able to see that.) Despite this, I am easily embarrassed. Hearing "Whose kid won't shut up?" immediately put me on the defensive. At that point, even though I kept telling myself to calm down and be mindful, my natural responses kicked in. I made things worse by trying to simultaneously keep all of my children quiet and sitting; an impossible task.
I do have the greatest friends in the world though. Two amazing women helped bring me back down to earth. Thank you ladies. I love you both dearly!
And now on to the fun part of the strawberry picking. :)
