Another mans trash....

....is a little girl's treasure. 

We all get them. Dandelions. They grow so fast and so tall telling all your neighbours you haven't mowed your lawns and most people I know hate them. There are a weed, and not something I treasure. The following post is why I love children, (especially my child) they can see beauty in the world where us adults can't. A weed, and a reminder to do yard work turned into an hour of fun and exploration for my wee girl... Something so annoying (to me) was adored by Sophia, I will never see dandelions the same again... 



Hey mama, Look what I found...

Isn't it pretty?
They smell so pretty

Here mama, you hold them for me...


Just a few more....
Let me just have another sniff

I insisted on bringing them inside so Mama
put them in water for me...


And they took pride of place on the living room mantle...


We had such an awesome time outside. Sophia loves the outdoors and especially flowers. She sniffs every flower she sees (even those in books and magazines). I was amazed at the time she took to pick nearly every single dandelion on the lawn. Its moments like this I really cherish being a mama, watching them discover the wonder of the world around me. So often she teaches me to see the world in a new light, no longer is a dandelion a weed, it is just a beautiful flower in an inconvenient place.
