Timothy discovered the fun of dandelions about a week or so ago. He ran around with Molly picking all the dandelions he could find and bringing them to us so we could make a wish and help him blow all the seeds off and watch them float away on the breeze.
The other day I was sitting outside on the porch while Timothy ran around the yard. Then from down the yard I could see him running towards me. As he got closer, I could hear that he was giggling while looking down at something in his hands. Then I heard him say, "Flower for Mama, Mama happy! Yes, Mama Happy!"
He stumbled up the porch steps and proudly displayed his two dandelions.
"Oh Timothy!" I said while giggling along with him, "Look what you have!"
"Mama flower! Mama happy!"
"Aww, Tim! Yes! I see! That does make me happy! Should we make a wish?"
Then I made a wish and blew on mine and Tim...maybe made a wish...and blew on his.
Oh my gosh, that moment filled my heart with happiness and joy! Thank you for that wish, Tim. You are the most thoughtful child.
