“Discover and grow something out of the seeds sweetie.”
“I will Mama. It will grow as a tree, hard wood. I will make a home out of it!”
Each day the little girl watered her seed; her tree. “Lalala , I am excited to turn you into something really special!”
The little girl was expectant — what she wants she will get.
“Mama! There’s something growing in my tree!”
“Oh that’s a tomato, sweetie.”
“A tomato! But I want a tree, with hard wood!”
“Yes, you want a tree but what you have is a tomato. Why, you can make pasta with it – spaghetti?”
“But I don’t like spaghetti! I want to make a home with hard wooden floors, and chairs, and treasure box!” She insisted that she wants nothing but a hard wood. “I don’t like that plant anymore Mama. It’s yours now.”
Before she became a mother to little boys and little girls, she was a little girl. She had dreams. She had tantrums. She had her wants.
She is a Mama now. Her Mama is now her kiddos Grandma.
“Grandma, I love your spaghetti!”
“Thank you, Cutie. That spaghetti is special because I used a really special tomato in there.”
“A really special tomato? That must be the secret ingredient! I will tell Mama about that secret ingredient!”
