Tea Time

Tea Time

It’s a past time of many a girl through generations and from around the world :: tea time.

And for one little girl in our household, the tradition continues. Jordyn loves to play tea party. From the time she was a toddler with a little plastic set, then a picnic set of enamelware, and now to beautiful porcelain. She enjoys the process of setting up, choosing a treat and making the tea. At times, the sweet treats are not of the edible variety so that our visits to the dentist stay at check-ups only!

So far this summer, there have been tea parties in her room {no real tea allowed in there}, in the kitchen, the basement and outside under the shade of our maple trees. A collection of stuffed animal friends, or perhaps just a special one are the guests :: of course, Mom, siblings and even Dad in the evenings have been summoned as well to join in on the fun.
Realizing that this is such an enjoyable part of her playtime, we will be incorporating tea time into our schedule for school this year. Together, the girls and Mom will sit down several times a week for a short moment {probably 1/2 hr} to just catch our breath, together.
Maybe there will be a special story shared, poetry read, or a particular music CD to listen to. Or maybe simply a time to anticipate right after doing the hard work of phonics, language lessons or math. The primary agenda will be to enjoy one another and our tea. It’s all in development stage right now, but will definitely be a part of our days. Besides, it should be mentioned that this little girl’s Mama loves tea time as well!

    Oh beautiful!

    Our youngest daughter hosted her 7th I think it was annual Valentine’s tea party this year. It is always held the last Saturday afternoon before Valentine’s day. She plans to host this every year for the rest of her life.

    The year before last, her guest list was too large for our home, so she had a revolving party, overlapped by 1/2 hour so guests from the first and second party could visit a while and we were also able to get a group picture with ‘all’ the girls that way. It was ‘very’ fun!!!

    What you have planned for your weekly tea gatherings will create so many wonderful memories and create so much balance in your days. 🙂ReplyCancel

    I love tea time! Our sons think it’s girly so we have “coffee” time around here but mom is the only one who is allowed real coffee in her cup.ReplyCancel
