Our First Tea Party

When I was a little girl my mom and dad started a tea cup collection for me. My mother had a friend who painted tea cups so each year for my birthday and Christmas I would get a one of a kind tea cup. As I got older my mom began expanding my collection to also include tea pots. I now have a beautiful collection of both sitting in my kitchen garden window.

I find it odd that I love tea cups and tea pots so much since I rarely drink tea. I actually don't really like it unless it's a fruit tea, anything herbal I can't stand. So to have this love of tea cups, tea pots and tea parties is odd.  I also don't remember having a tea party growing up although I'm sure I did at some point. Don't all little girls?

Two year ago I found out I was to be the mom to a little girl. At first I was worried, I was truly a boy's kind of mom into sports, superheros, science fiction and video games. How was I to relate to a little girl? Of course when our little Alexa arrived I related to her right away, we are truly cut from the same cloth and my love for books, fairies, butterflies, princesses and the things pink have enveloped her also.

For Alexa's baptism she was given a beautiful Pottery Barn tea set from a friend and for the last year it has sat on her shelf waiting for the day she was big enough to use it. Last week that day came and the dream of playing tea party with my little girl came true.

Alexa caught on quickly and we enjoyed our imaginary tea. She loved pouring it into the cups and then pouring the cup back into the teapot. She would hold up her cup so I could pour her some tea and of course my favorite part.....

Was watching her drink! She would tilt her head all the way back and finish with a satisfied grin.

Thank you Lord for giving me this time to treasure with my daughter, Amen

Until next time,
