The other night (right before bed) Jack asked if we could have tea together. My initial thought was "come on, stop staling, it's bed time". Then I realized that maybe he just wanted some big boy time with his mommy who at that very moment was NOT holding his new baby sister. Thankfully I agreed and we made tea together. It was very special - we boiled the water, he steeped the tea bag, I poured 3 cups of tea and they added just a bit of sugar to each of their cups. Branden was home but said he was too hot for tea - it was a pretty hot night. Jack said he wanted to use fancy cups and saucers. We don't really have any "fancy" ones but what we had worked - he was happy. We also ate a few tea cookies (a.k.a. animal crackers) and shared a few laughs. It was a very nice end to the day with my boys. So glad he suggested it!
