It's Better to Give

Cuddle time!

I think I've mentioned a time or two about Cooper's propensity for shenanigans and mischief. Just when I'm about to wring his neck, his heart of gold emerges. Cooper's generous and quick to give gifts to loved ones. Cooper's gifts are unique (due to the budgetary constraints of a four-year-old). I've been given: pennies found on the floor, leftover food, and quite frequently items found in nature (think leaves, sticks, rocks, and the like).

Today, Cooper rushed into the house clutching two golden dandelions. He had a smile plastered on his face as he placed the lemon colored weeds in my hands.

"Mom, I brought you flowers from our yard. There's tons of them out there," He exclaimed, flushed with excitement.

Chris and I laughed.

"Pick as many as you can," Chris declared.

I think I'll hold on to the weeds. I hope they'll serve as a reminder of the sweet boy that resides amid the activity.

If dandelions were hard to grow, they would be most welcome on any lawn. ~Andrew Mason

One more thing: Does anyone have any advice on how to get gum out of a pair of pants? If so, shoot me an email or leave a suggestion in the comments. Thanks friends!
