Joy in the Little Things
It only took a few minutes to prepare and yet it made my daughter's day.
Our two boys were off to a tractor show for the day, and just the girls were at home with mama and papa (my husband is self employed which is why he was home). I promised them a tea party for breakfast. After getting my boys out the door I quickly made some biscuit cinnamon rolls for breakfast. While they were cooking I pulled out our tea sets. The girls got to use my smaller tea pot which I filled with chocolate milk for them. My husband and I used the larger tea pot with orange juice. A nice tablecloth, some flowers I already had in a vase and tea cups quickly went on the table.
In 10 minutes I had a lovely table setting and some excited little girls. We gathered around the table and helped our three year old pour her chocolate milk into her tea cup. You could just sense her excitement over being a big girl and getting to use these lovely items.
