Fresh Entertainment

If you give a little girl a freshly picked tomato from the garden...



It will keep her entertained for at least an hour.




(Please ignore the fact that one of them is green. It might have been plucked a tad before its time).




They may even get placed in the princess purse - and I don't think the tomatoes realize what a HUGE honor this is. They have hit the big time. Right next to the lip gloss, which is a staple in this household.



And you will get a smile like this that says, "Thanks for the tomato, Mama...you're a rock star!"

That is so sweet!! My daughter puts all sorts of things in her princess bag ~ but lipgloss is a favourite with her too!!

Too funny! My baby grabbed herself a half-ripe cherry tomato from our garden, too, but it got chewed and squirted pretty quickly before I could snap a photo of her with it (on today's WW post).

From the way this post started, I thought it was going to be Savannah going from one activity to another a la "If you Give A Mouse a Cookie"...

Glad that tomatoes are so entertaining!

What an adorable smile!!

My Bubbalu has been helping himself to all the blueberries off my parent's blueberry bush in their backyard. He even eats the unripe ones!

Jennifer @ Taking My Time said...

Thanks for the comment! And school is going well for both Rick and myself. Just wish we'd finished it all when we were younger.

Maybe I should be twittering!!

Jennifer @ Taking My Time said...

oops, I meant to ask how your evenings have been with your husband working extra?

I really should get that Twitter account set up...

The Sullivan Sitcom said...

That last picture is just the sweetest thing ever. I hope you are framing that one! I also love that she put the tomatoes in her purse. A girl must always have some cool stuff in her purse.
