Yesterday my daughter, Karrah called and said that Saydee’s babysitter had a sick child and could she come to Grandma’s house.
She’s always a delight so of course I said, ‘yes’.
As soon as mom headed off to work Saydee wanted to go up into the bonus room to find a toy. Grandma obliged.
Originally she said that she wanted ‘to play dress ups’. Grandma has a closet full of fun fashions. But when I told her I was going outside to spray off the front porch she settled for Barbie’s. No fun to dress up without Grandma watching.
We sprayed off the porch together. I did some and then handed the hose over to Saydee. She mentioned how she was a ‘good helper’. Indeed she was!
I plucked a ‘giant’ sunflower from the garden and placed it on my rustic bench. The sunflowers in my front yard reseeded from last year. I thought they were all small, but then this one and only giant beauty surprised me.
I’m just beginning to give the porch touches of Fall. It’s been in the 70’s here lately and feeling very Fall like.
When we went back inside Saydee asked if she could dress up as a helper. I was curling my hair and said, ‘sure, I’d be up in a minute’.
She headed up stairs on her own and this is what she came down in. Wondering what kind of a helper she is? lol!
I couldn’t resist so I grabbed the camera. I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking for me.
I love that ‘Sunflower Saydee June’! Named after my sweet mother.
p.s. Did I mention that she took the hat and slip home with her? But the scarf (boa) was too itchy.
