Ever garden with a six-year-old? Here's how it goes.
Me: Put on gardening gloves
Lisa: "Are you putting gloves on?"
Me: Begin to dig a hole for a shrub.
Lisa: "Why are you digging?"
Me: Halfway through digging the hole.
Lisa: "I think that's enough."
Me: Open the bag of compost to mix with the soil.
Lisa: "Why are you doing that?"
Lisa: Sees my unused trowel, "Why do you have a little shovel?"
Time: 3 minutes into my 2 hour project.
Question: What to do about Miss Nonstop Questions?
Solution: Put her to work.
Result: My little gardener stuck with me, for the entire two hours! She dug holes, composted, and planted 12 annuals. Then she watered all of our new plants. We had a great time together and there wasn't one more meaningless question.
