When we told my little granddaughter, Lily, that we were going to Olive Garden, she asked us if we were going to see flowers. HUH??? It went completely over my head (after all, she's a worldly two) and her mother explained it to me by putting a heavy emphasis on "Olive...GARDEN"
Lily's favorite part was putting sugar in my tea for me and licking the sugar off the edge of the packet while keeping a side-long glance at her mother to make sure Mom hadn't seen her do it.
Life is so much better with a 2-year-old around to ensure you remember the best things in life are, indeed, free.
