A Hobby

My little girl has a hobby. She is a collector.
Her passion…her muse…is nature. All nature. We have rock collections, little piles of grass collections, stick and pinecone collections, and my favorite…little crushed flower collections. Crushed, because they are held so very tightly in her little fists.

This hobby is confusing to me. I don’t care for the nature so much. But I do care for this adorable little girl. And so I will continue to put up with her strange little hobby.
Beautiful little weirdo…

    With such a beautiful smile, how could you say No to a collection of flowers?? I wouldn't be able to tell her no for anything. She is too cute! Love all your pictures and stories.I'm looking forward to finding rocks in the washer from our little's pockets. Hopefully I don't find a frog or any other alive nature creatures. 🙂 I can't wait until he comes home!

    So very cute, she will win you over with those sweet smiles.My daughter collected worms and named each and every one, she too came beaming to show me, so I tried to concentrate on that smile and the enthusiasm rather than the squiggly wigglies moving throughout her little fingers.Enjoy, Miss M is ever so special!mlynne
