Easiest parenting afternoon ever. Me Too was out of town with Daddy. Kal-El had a "free-range" afternoon outside. He spent about three hours sitting in a folding chair he set up by himself, drinking from a water bottle he filled himself, watching his tomatoes grow.
After a little while he knocked on the patio doors and said, "Mommy, my chair has a tray on it. The tray would look real good with a snack on it."
While he was out there he watered his garden and rode a bike on the driveway. He also spent a lot of time making a brush pile and transferring it to different locations in the yard with both his child-sized wheelbarrow and Daddy's full-sized wheelbarrow. He is just like his Bumpa...right down to the wheelbarrow we found hidden randomly in the yard three days later, full of rainwater, rusting, with a pair of work gloves floating on top.
