A Mad Tea Party

My almost 4 year old son had a tea party yesterday.  It was really cute.  He had his little table and 4 chairs set up.  Each place had a cup, a plate (really a coaster) and a napkin.  He served crayons for snacks, and carefully placed some on each coaster.  He then pretended to pour "tea" from his cup into all the other cups.  The best part for me was the guests.  In one chair he had a big plastic lizard, in another his toy phone, and in the third chair he had one of the attachments to my vacuum cleaner.  Now that's imagination!

Which one was supposed to represent "Mommy?"

I love that. Kids are so sweet and innocent and creative. Wish we could take the time to enjoy those really simple things sometimes.

I can vividly remember those days. My girls had their plastic table, plastic chairs and loved having parties with their friends.

Enjoy it while you can. It truly does go by too quick.

What a blessing children are. They can rejuvenate us even after wearing us to a frazzle. Continue to enjoy these precious moments provided by a precious child.

I fondly remember the times my girls had to fix my hair with barrettes. I was still on active duty and didn't have very long hair. Those moments are priceless.

There is a series of TV ads showing tea parties that is showing in our area right now. It always reminds me of the barrettes and other wonderful moments.

I know you have lots of such treasured memories, too.

Treavor is going to grow up with a great mind....He is already using it for imagination. It reminds me of my childhood as we did not have toys to play with, we had to use our imagination. It is so refreshing to know there are children in this world today using imagination instead of having baskets and baskets of toys and never using their little minds or either playing computer games instead of having tea parties.

Hats off to you and your hubby. You are doing something right..
