Picnic for the Teddy Bears

I came downstairs last night for a glass of water at 11:45 p.m. (Kavi’s bedtime over break is supposed to be 11 p.m.), to find her carefully placing little gummy bears in what remained of our previous chocolate cake village + meringue mounds of snow scene. And she’d even made a chocolate tree!

I didn’t have a lot of heart to scold her for being up too late — as Kavi said, she was making art! And when she had the idea to get a shot of falling snow, I had to help, right? That’s what a GOOD mother would do.

(I know, I know. I’m an enabler. We’re going to pay for it on Monday, when classes start…)

If you go down in the woods today
you’re sure of a big surprise
If you go down in the woods today

you’d better go in disguise!

For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain

because today’s the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic…
