Blackberries for Iz
Many of you, I hope, enjoyed the book Blackberries for Sal as children. It held a special place in our house because Sal is one of the many nicknames belonging to my dear little sister, Sarah. As a child, she even kinda looked like the girl in the story, so even though the timing wasn't quite right, we just figured the book was actually written for her. Nothing like the egocentricity of small children.
It's been awhile since blueberries were on sale at Aldi, so our berry of choice lately has been the noble blackberry. Now, Isabel is not the voracious eater that Elijah once was, and could even possibly be called picky. If left to her own devices, she would happily eat cheese and hummus exclusively. So, imagine my surprise when I found out that the absolutely loves blackberries. Loves them. As in, would eat a whole box if Elijah was not around to secure his portion. I made it to the checkout counter this week with a mere half-box remaining, and two rather purpled children. Blackberries for Iz, indeed.
