One Little Boy at Teatime
Not exactly a princess tea time,
for me there is one little boy to share tea with.
So we started out when he was just tike.
At 2 years old we shared tea time in his cottage.
Oh what fun we had!
And then there were times when at his little table we sat
as he learned to nibble cookies and pour the tea.
Then the day came when we sat in the garden
and honored the Mad Hatter with tea time.
Several hats were tried.
Tea was poured.
Then during the winter we had a Harry Potter teatime too.
He is getting older now, so off to the Lan Su Chinese Garden
where we sipped flowers in the teapot.
According to parents desires, the tea is herbal in the pot.
In the pink wings and cowboy hat below he is serving tea to a friend.
And this takes place as he is 5 years old.
He is learning to appreciate tea time with Mimi.
Each year it becomes so precious to me to celebrate with tea and
my special "D" over tea.
This last celebration was to celebrate starting kindergarten soon.
So tell me this!
Why is it so often about little girls having tea parties
and not the boys?
Yes, he loves playing like a boy and being adventurous too;
but tea parties for little boys can bring out a whole different side of him.
It can be a time of teaching, but also celebration,
or just savoring the day over a cup of tea.
