It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Behind the Scenes

Sometimes there’s another whole story behind what they think they’re telling you…

Arthur is admiring a flower in my front yard.

“Mary, may I sniff your plant?”

“Well, of course you can, sweetie.”

He positions himself carefully, leans over, closes his eye, and takes a deep and audible snort. Straightens and smiles, very pleased with his little self.

“There. I didn’t eat it. I just sniffed it.”

  1. So cute. I’m glad he just sniffed it too!

  2. One has to wonder, has he eaten flowers before and gotten scolded for it?

  3. Crayonz: he’s happy, I’m happy. Except when he’s happy cuz he’s just eaten a yummy begonia.

    Haley: that’s what I inferred. He’d be the one to do it – pretty oral, this boy.
