impromptu tea party.
pretty dresses... messy hair... five minute set up.
a scrap of fabric on the table. a quick brew of some peppermint tea. a search for crackers... and a flower for the table. "this was the only one i could find mama." using the little tea cups and the special honey. smiling as i watched them enjoy each others company for possibly the first time that morning (it had been a grumpy morning).
reminding myself to make more time for moments like this.
these ages are such a special, and important, time for connection.
... and it only took fifteen minutes.
