Happy Earth Day (with a message from Spock)

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I’d post a photo of one of my reasons for hoping that we don’t forget to take care of this planet. Her Tinkerbell shirt has some blue and green, so it’s somewhat festive:

This is my Charlotte, age 2.

We kept a few pumpkin seeds from last year's crop and planted them inside~ we'll transplant them when it gets a little warmer outside. Here's her first attempt at gardening:

And here's to you, Mother Earth~ Live Long And Prosper!

(This is Charlotte as a baby~ she randomly flashed this sign and I caught it on camera. I don't even watch Star Trek, but I thought it was funny)

Have a wonderful weekend! Stay tuned next week for Pirate-Question Tuesday and another Agent Tweet Friday to round out the month!


  1. oh! TOO CUTE!!!!
    i didn't even realize it was earth day. i'm terrible at keeping up with the holidays!

  2. LOL this post was both heartwarming and hysterical at the same time!! We will be celebrating Earth Day today too. My kids are very fond of doing things like planting trees, cleaning up litter and running throughout the house to keep the lights off when they aren't needed. So, thanks for reminding us!

  3. Cutest baby pic ever!

    I am sure Spock would approve.

    Happy planting!


  4. HAHA, that baby picture is awesome! She started young, I guess.

  5. See that attitude on her face? I just loved it. Loved it.
    Star Trek is a scifi classic for me, just like Star Wars. You should give it a try when you get a chance.
    Happy Earth day to you too. :)

  6. Oh my word, that is so cute!!! A tiny baby Spock! Hehe. Too adorable. Love that you're planting seends with your little one. My mom does that with my girls since I can't seem to keep plants alive for long.

  7. Oh she's a cutie! And I love that you got a picture with her hand like that.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. hi miss jess! wow charlotte is soooo cute and i like shes already being a gardner and gonna grow up helping take care of mother earth. im in a big group from all over the world that stops what were doing on every tuesday at 11 am est and sends love to mother earth and prays for us to take care of all of nature. happy earth day!
    ...hugs from lenny

  9. What a little dear! She is just adorable! Happy Earth Day to you, too.

  10. Awww, so cute! My boys like to help in the garden, too, for a little while anyway - until the lure of the swingset is too much to ignore.

    Have a good Earth Weekend!


  11. The blog is very good!

  12. Great picture of your little one! I'd be tempted to photoshop a little Spock shirt on her.

  13. What a sweet little nugget. Great photo. Have a most excellent and fun weekend. Cheers.

  14. what a great baby photo!!!
    Happy Earth Day - thanks for posting this reminder.

  15. What a cutie! How cool that you captured the live long and prosper sign on her when she was a baby. :)

  16. What a sweetheart! I bet she's a cuddler, and loves to have stories read to her...and I bet you love to do the reading :-) I know I enjoy reading to my 3-yr old granddaughter, altho she's usually too busy running around to stay still for it very long...

    Have a great rest of the weekend!

  17. Oh, I forgot it was Earth Day too! Thanks for reminding me. I think I can find some seeds for my girls to plant, what a good idea.

    And I LOVE the baby spock picture! What a precious moment! That picture could make you & her famous, don't you know!

  18. Your little girl is SO cute! And what a cute baby she was :D

    Earth Day is awesome!

    The problem is, I think our governments (at least in Aus and the US) are the ones with the most power AND the least will to make a change. it pisses me off.

    Of course, they have other very GREEN governments leading the way, but they seem to be ignoring those examples.

  19. Such a cutie pie! I'm so glad you are introducing her to gardening at such a young age. It will become a lifetime love. Make sure you put up pics of her first home grown pumpkin!

  20. She's so gorgeous!

    Hope you're having a lovely Easter weekend :)



  21. Aww, how cute. Babies are awesome. I haven't done a garden with my kids yet but would love too some day.

  22. Very adorable ... and you featured Spock. Have I told you that you R.O.C.K. lately? :-)

    Hope you and yours had a great holiday weekend and Earth Day.


  23. I love your baby's picture! That is too funny.

  24. SOOO adorable!!! :) What a great pic! Thanks for sharing ~
