Home Spun comic strip #374
Yes she did. One of the ways Marina and Chase spoiled me is that they never put things in their mouths. On the other hand, Sierra kept me on my toes. No matter how well I swept and vacuumed, she could find the one tiny rhinestone in the corner that I missed. It got worse when she learned how to climb. There was that one week when we had to call poison control...twice. She was two and could work the child safety caps.
On the plus side, I learned a lot about my wild plants as she followed me around the yard. I kept a wildflower and weed identification book on hand, just in case her hand was quicker than my eye. My garden is all natural--no herbicides, pesticides, or other toxic chemicals. So she was OK in spite of sampling the dandelion. And once Marina had the garden growing well, Sierra limited her picking to actual vegetables. I suppose they tasted better.
