Something good

Every once in awhile, you have one of those moments that you know you will always remember.

Like watching the man you love holding your child in his arms, teaching her how to blow on a dandelion just right. Her squeal of unparalleled joy as the little white tufts break away and float down to the grass.

Then watching her shove the naked dandelion head into her mouth, dandelion seeds caught in the river of snot dripping down from her nose.

Bliss, I tell you. Bliss.

ScienceMama, this post absolutely warmed my heart. This is, in every single way, my life. My kudos to you for also finding joy in the random things that get stuck in boogies.

I laughed when I read this at midnight last night, and had to come back to read it again. Lovely, Sciencemama. Lovely, hilarious, and just a little bit gross all at once. Just like our toddlers =)
