Is this a problem?

Remember in Saved By the Bell, when the class learned about the “difficulties” of taking care of an infant by having to protect an egg for a week?  If that experiment proved anything, then Matt and I may be in trouble.  In May, we both decided to pick out our own plant to enjoy for the summer.  I chose a hanging, potted, flowering plant.  He chose a jalapeno plant.

Both plants show signs of struggle, and both have definite signs of defeat.  So…Matt and I aren’t the most nurturing plant parents.  So we don’t have a green thumb.  I’m ok with that.  I just hope we’re better human parents.  So far, we haven’t forgotten to feed Zoe Kate once.  AND we’re pretty decent at pruning (aka, clipping) her fingernails.  I’m encouraged by this.

    about that nail clipping…wasn’t the 1st time a little messy?!

    And yes, you two will be the best and most nurturing arents..I have no doubt.

  3. You didn’t love your plant and Matt didn’t really care for his jalepenos too much, right? And you LOVE Zoe Kate, so you’ll be great parents. Right?
