Lately, we have a little game we play. We pick handfuls of dandelions at one end of the park & then run them down to the creek at the other end, throw them in and watch them swim. This is loads of fun for a 2 year old. It solves so many of our problems: first we rid the rec. center of it's weeds, second we use up a ton of energy and third it's quite calming to watch the dandelions float down the creek; plus the creek is slow moving, so this takes up time.

As frustrating as it is to live with a "goldfish", these simple little moments fill up my heart and calm my soul while I watch a big bouquet of bright yellow dandelions floating down a muddy creek.
I hope she never grows up........just gets a longer attention span.
