Yesterday, Ruth helped me. First, we put down the clover seed that finally showed up. I planted too late in the fall and frost killed it all, so our backyard has been looking like a blasted wasteland. Ruth helped spread it.
Then she helped me give the seeds a nice drink of water. "I hold hose, Daddy! There mud in there. I see mud!"
We also planted blueberry bushes (not shown). It was the culmination of an anniversary day/Good Friday closed daycare Dad day. It was pretty fun. We went to the wine store ("I like wine. Beer! Is beer, Daddy!"), to Whole Foods ("I need muffin! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeese!"), and to the plant store where Miss Joan showed her a whole bunch of flowers that she smelled while I picked out the blueberry bushes. When I'm not giving myself an ulcer because I'm not writing, she's a fun kid to hang out with.
