Since Nico is young, we weren’t planning anything, but after nap time, I remembered that a hardware store was giving away little trees today if an Eco product was bought, so we went, bought ourselves a new Eco water hose and Nico got a cute little tree by the nice man at the till. He was thrilled! He was holding it strongly but carefully since it was a cold windy day. He tried to climb in the van with it but I told him to put him on the floor, he tried to make it stand (it was just a little seedling with roots in a plastic bag), it was cute.
I told him to lay it down, it was too small to stand, he did so very carefully
On the way home he wanted to stop at one of his favorite restaurants for dinner, so we did.
We put some rocks at the bottom since it didn’t have draining holes, a little dirt and…
…put our tree in and packed more dirt around it as per the tree bag instructions.
He was very proud of his little tree. Nico knows he will be in charge to water it and taking care of it. He wanted to plug the new hose and water it right away, lol. The dirt was very wet so he didn’t have to, but at least he was doing his job. I asked him what he was gonna call his tree, he said: l’arbre (the tree in French). I tried to make him understand I meant a name like he has, but nope, l’arbre it was. Got to love his certainty of things
