Rockabye .. Celery?

No foolin'..

So, JuneBug and I are at the grocery store today doing some shopping (she is an extraordinary shopper might I add). Trying to keep her engaged I was handing her veggies/fruit and we were bagging them together and chatting away. She then takes a celery bunch, cradles it .. and starts rocking it.

Like a baby.

I, of course, break into my rendition of "Rockabye Celery" while onlookers are doing double takes. I would like to think it's because she is so stinkin' cute (but the reality is it was probably because I'm weird.. and I'm okay with that).

That's how JuneBug and I roll on a Saturday morning, ya'll!

I think they were staring because she is so cute! I mean, really, Rockabye celery? that's not out of the ordinary at all! :)

I agree with Tiff. When I was a kid we made babies from zucchini out of my grandmother's garden. Same diff.

Hi Melissa....

Just started following your blog. I have just embarked on the journey of adoption and a friend suggested your blog to me. I am a new blogger too, because it seemed like a great way to chronicle our adventure. I'm really looking forward to your sage advice and experience. Thanks for sharing your story.

It sounds like you are having a blast!

I don't think that's weird! In the grocery store with kids, you do what you need to do to get things done.

I think "Rock-a-bye Celery" might just catch on!

What might be "weird" is if you start doing it without JuneBug there. Then people may stop and wonder.
