Kavi made a card for Kevin, with a cut-out flower attached; she wanted some fresh flowers too. We went out to the yard, and I asked her what she wanted to pick. Her first impulse was for the new astilbe, feathery and pink -- I plaintively asked if she could pick something else, because I just
put those in and they're still a bit fragile for picking. We started walking around, and I pointed out a dozen other flowers, but none of them would suit her.
Finally, she hesitantly asked if it would be okay if we picked some forget-me-nots. So daddy wouldn't forget us. So we did.
