the bean finale

"Mommy! Beans!"
*pause, run to beans, start picking a few, looks at me*
"Do you think we could have them for lunch?"

Of course we will have you for lunch dear beans. Beans, fruits of our labor. Beans, that we have watched grow from a tiny kidney bean.
We will watch you boil away in hot water beans.
We will admire how green and beautiful you are, beans.
We will shout out, "Mommy, they have SEEDS in them!"
And finally we will try you, beans. And we will pronounce you "mmmm, yummy beans!"
But then we will ask for some oranges and a peanut butter sandwhich.
Seriously, did you all really expect a 3 1/2 year old to eat them even though he grew them?
Beans, it has been a great journey.
