Melts Me!

This past weekend I was with the four year old I nanny for and we were going out for a walk. We started towards our usual direction, he jumping, walking, singing, and checking that his new 'keys' were in his pocket=)

We arrived at a small patch of the tiniest little yellow flowers in the grass, the size of about half your pinkie fingernail. He saw them and said,
"Oooo!!! Look M!!! Look at these little flowers!"
I said, "Oh, they are so cute, so pretty, N. " He started to bend over and picked one up. He handed it to me, and said, "Here, this is for you.
I picked a flower for you." (tooo cute)=)
I said, "OH, N, thank you! This is beautiful, I love it." He looked at it in my hand and said, "Ok. But you need to water it everyday ok?" (*melts*) lol..

I later accidentally dropped it because it was so tiny, and he went back to the patch on our way back. This time, he picked a new one up, and said,
"Here's a new one!" He handed it to me, and said as he put it in my hand, staring at it intently,"Shhhhhh" , placing it in my hand as if it were a tiny baby, very carefully. Then, "Shhh..."again, while he was looking at it...
OMG..KIDs are , well... little bundles of a perfect moment=)

Hi Joydream!<br />
<br />
Glad that both of you use your seat belts, your young charge sounds very precious as are most his age. If he likes toy trains, Lionel has a website at: I think he'll enjoy looking at the catalog pictures & there are videos too. Hop he will enjoy them. Please take very good care as you're a blessing in this young boy's life. Have a happy day.

Hi Joydream! You are most welcome. I also hope you will continue to take care of this particular little boy for a long time. I think you are making a very positive difference in his life. If you take him for a ride in your car as part of your duties, make sure he is buckled up for safety & that you do the same for yourself. Please take care & have a very nice & happy evening.

Thank you kwoody..I do take him out sometimes, and he and I BOTH have our seatbelts on!! Thank you so kindly for saying I'm making a positive difference in his life...*curtsies to you*.. have a great one too:)

That little boy is fortunate to have a kind & considerate baby-sitter such as yourself. I think the flowers were his way of expressing his love for you too. Take Care.

awww! Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment..that made my day:)

I love this story! So nice too. Take Care.
