Most kids have lemonade stands... not mine...
My five year old decided that she wanted to have a farm stand. In my driveway. I was mortified. I usually give the neighbors my extra veggies all summer long. How the hell could I justify charging them for this??? And in all honesty, it is still early for us - we are eating everything as soon as it comes it. No need to try to sell anything!!!
Long story short, I ran to all of the neighbors. Left dollars and notes in their mailbox telling them about the "farm stand." Two of them saw this and came. Bought everything but two tomatoes and two cucumbers with my money. Still wondering where my other dollars that I left for the other neighbors went.
And yet, I still had to sit in the driveway with the kids for another two hours. Every time a car passed, they held up a tomato and cuc and yelled "farm stand." I have to say that I was initially mortified. But after seeing them, my heart melted. They were so earnest and really tried so hard.
And notice the sign under my daughter's cardboard box - it says... "farm stand." Written in her five year old letters. How could you resist???
They are too cute!!!
