Last Wednesday, on the way to the sitter he asked if we were going to Hobby Lobby after Becky's. I told him, "probably not today buddy." He hung his head and cried, "but I want to go! I want to get flowers for my sister." yup, broke this mama's heart.
On the way home, I asked him if he still wanted me to stop thinking he may have changed his mind. Noah HATES Hobby Lobby...mainly because there is no "toy island" (isle) and I am always telling him not to touch anything! ;) To my surprise (and delight) he insisted we stop... even warned me,
"Don't miss the exit, OK Mom."
love that boy!
he picked the flowers all by himself,
chatting away the entire time,
"Only pink ones Mom."
"I like THESE ones!"
"I want two of them for my sisters grave."
You sure you don't one a few more of these, I questioned.
"No, Mom, just two."
It was not as full of a bouquet as I would normally do for her vase, but Noah got exactly what he wanted for his sister. I "arranged" them for him and we replaced Amelia's Memorial Day flowers and wreath with the small bouquet from Amelia's Big Brother (A title he takes very seriously).
I am thinking despite my concerns of the fullness of the bouquet... she would have loved them.
