How to Grow a Sandwich

Step 1: This is a very important step, as it does not always work with Mommy. You need to bat your eyelashes at your Dad and convince him to take you to lunch at a local sandwich shop.

Step 2: Order your favorite and least complicated sandwich, that being turkey AND ham with cheese and mustard (trust me, they will make this special sandwich for you, even though it is not on the menu). That's it. Nothing else. No lettuce or tomato or . . . god forbid, mayonnaise. That would just ruin the whole experience.

Step 3: Find the most ridiculous spot in the restaurant to eat, you know - the tables with the really, really high stools at them. This will make your Mommy nervous, and she will probably keep her hand on the back of your stool the entire time, but hey - it's totally worth it to be sitting up so high.

Step 4: See those seeds on top of your turkey AND ham sandwich? Yes, those ones. They are called "sesame seeds," in case you didn't know that already. I know because I'm in preschool and I know everything! Okay, pick a few of those seeds off the bread and tell your parents that you're going to plant those seeds and grow yourself a sandwich.

Yes, my friends, it is as easy as that.

If you'd like any more tips on how to stall bedtime, how to win over your preschool teachers, how to wash your Polly Pockets or how to dress like a superstar just let me know!

Love,
Katie

It's this kind of anecdote that makes blogging totally worthwhile. In a few years, this kind of comment will be a thing of the past, and if you don't preserve it somewhere, it's gone for good.

VERY CUTE!

Clearly, I have not been reading the right gardening books. :-)

That is adorable! How cute. I remember thinking I could grow anything from a couple of seeds.
Too cute.
