We started our tea-time tradition last Wednesday followed by our second round this week. Elijah was so excited. He handed me this note in the early morning (a subtle hint):
We had Apple Cake and Vanilla Chai for our tummies and fed our minds with Here’s a Little Poem.
Tea-time lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. Both boys want me to keep reading poetry! This week we had a simple snack of apples and peanut butter caramel dip with Hot Cocoa (by request). I read from Now We are Six. Simon screamed when I stopped reading. I guess he enjoys Pooh Poetry. What a nice break in our week. Just a time to sit and share together and eat a yummy snack that wouldn’t otherwise be served. I like having tea-time just once a week to give us something to really look forward to doing together. If you have boys, and you think tea-time would NEVER go over. Well, let me tell you, it WILL. What child can resist a sweet treat topped with mom’s undivided attention? Try tea time. You won’t be sorry.
