And then there were two...

We are loving the summer fruits. I recently stocked up on fresh peaches and blackberries. Everyone in the family loves them, so I try to be sure to save some for Daddy.
Yesterday we had a couple of fresh berries 'just because'.
This morning we had blackberries and peaches with our yogurt and granola.
It made our breakfast a little bit sweeter.

I was upstairs and the reliable oldest child came running.
"Mommy, you aren't going to believe this. You need to come see, NOW!"
I have to give the boy credit, usually when he says this it really IS something worth seeing.
Today was no exception.

One leg on my desk and a foot on my chair,
his mouth was stuffed,
as if he heard us coming and in a panic he just shoveled in as many as he could.
His fingers, cheeks, clothing, the counter top and my chair were all stained with drippy, juicy evidence.
A pint of juicy berries all for himself.
I bet it was worth it to a certain 2 year old.

A couple scattered berries were on the floor.
Quick pick it up.
We'll save those for Daddy.

Good as new. ;)
