It's Okay

Both girls' faces were plastered on the window, looking out into our front yard. I heard some kids giggling outside but I waited until the girls' themselves reported what they are looking at.

And then IC saw me 'Mama, look at them. They are plucking our flowers in the front yard,' she exlaimed.

I said, 'and what must you do?' They tapped the window so that the girls outside would know that someone is in the house.

'Mama, they wont stop. They are still doing it,' MC added. I said 'then that it is up to you now'; thinking they would go to the door and shoo the girls away.

Nope, they left their places in front of the window and continued playing. With MC saying 'it's okay. We have enough flowers to share.'

hi rach - sometimes, with kids, you would be amazed what would come out of their mouths ano?

It has something to do with how you brought them up. The credits are yours too.

Generous hearts indeed ! I would prefer kids would ask permission from you if they can get some of your beautiful flowers.I also think the kids should learn to respect and be kind to nature too..let the flowers live !

haze - i would love to have them ask for permissions, too. my kids simply love flowers, they have asked the whole neighborhood for a bunch of two these past weeks. and they learn to take care of them of course :D
