Until now, I always thought the idea of little girls wanting to play “tea party” was just a concept invented by toy marketers to sell more product. And for all I know, perhaps it is. But if so, hey… it works!
Because for your 2nd birthday last month, our good friends Lena and Mohamad got you a tea set, and not only did you immediately want to play with it, but you instinctively knew what to do with it!
In fact, having our tea parties together has become a bit of a ritual. Your tea party set is getting a lot of use!
I will say though, for me, you change it from tea to coffee. That’s because for the past 6 months, with me working from home, you have observed me making my organic instant coffee twice a day.
Whenever you think it’s getting near the right time of the day for it, you always ask, “Daddy, coffee?”
My favorite story so far with this tea set was a few weeks ago when I was finishing up cleaning the bathroom upstairs, as part of my weekend routine. I had been up there for a solid 15 minutes.
Then you stood at the bottom of the stairs, and announced to me, “Daddy, coffee!”
Mommy helped explain that you had just made coffee downstairs for me and you wanted me to come down and take a break.
So I gladly did.
It was one of those precious moments that I just wasn’t expecting.
In your mind, you thought, “Daddy’s been up there a while. I bet he’d like some coffee right about now. I’ll go ahead and make him some…”
You are such a sweet little girl. How can I not be completely in love with my little sweetie?
