Juneberry

One berry  
 two berry
pick me a Juneberry...
Tuck will not eat strawberries.  Tuck will not eat grapes.  He will not eat cherries.  He will not eat blueberries.  But he will stand outside all.day.long under our Juneberry tree, his pointer finger extended upward, saying "up" or "berry" or "please."  And he will eat berry after berry after berry.  In fact, at this point there are no more berries within our reach.

I like when "up" and "please" don't seem quite enough, and he lifts his shoulders and raises up on his toes... willing his whole little self toward his heart's desire... be it berries or Kah or a glass of ice tea.

Tuck called,
Said..."please"..."buy ladder"...
"up/up"..."BERRIES!"

Then he added, "I love Poppy John more than Grandma Sandy." Just sayin'.

Wonder if you hung the strawberries and blueberries from the tree?

I love Jamberry. In fact, I read it to Charlie Bug last night. Never had a Juneberry...
