There are some moments with kids which make your heart melt.

Tonight, I introduced CJ to fresh peas from our garden.

He loved them, as all kids do.

It started with me popping some into his mouth to chew slowly; but it quickly picked up pace.

He was watching me shell them and eat them myself,

So he came and sat on my lap, and started pulling them from the pod himself and shoveling them into his mouth.

Next thing you know, he was standing holding the pea pods himself.

He pulled a pea, and into his mouth it went.

And then, something gorgeous happened.

He pulled another pea,

looked me in the eye,

and popped it into my mouth.

From then on, it was turn about for eating each one he plucked from the pod.

A lovely summer moment to warm the heart.
