Dandelion Days

Although the last few weeks of pregnancy are definitely uncomfortable, in some odd way I'm so thankful for them. 

For one thing, my very inability to move has forced me to take things slower and to minimize my natural busyness.

I absolutely cherish the guilt-free opportunity to sit, knit, and watch my kids enjoy themselves in the beautiful Spring sunshine.

I think God created dandelions specifically with children in mind. 

Dandelions are easy to identify, super-easy to spot, non-toxic, and easy to pick.  What better flower for children?  Mothers can bask in the warm glow of knowing their kids are lovingly picking them a bouquet of flowers without having to stress about the tulips getting ripped out of the ground roots and all.
