Secret garden

Josephine had some pretty great landscaping ideas for our yard tonight. What she told me: "Oh my gosh, mom. I have such a good idea. We could have a water fountain! With blue water! And hearts, and sparkles!....Oh! And swans could come live in it. Sweet mama and baby swans. We could plant rose bushes all around it, with pink flowers!"
I responded, "Those are great ideas. Maybe next year we could make a fountain with our landscaping budget. But I think what you really want is a secret garden. There is a secret garden in one of my all-time favorite books. Wanna read it with me soon?"
"YES!"
Okay, that is the sweetness of parenting.
