Special Exposure / Wordless Weds: Wishes

One afternoon, as I walked him home from school, James saw a dandelion gone to seed. From years of watching his sister, he knew what to do:

Honey, I remember when you could not hold something like a dandelion stem in your fingers. You could not lick a lollypop or blow bubbles, let alone talk and say "Look, Mommy -- I doing it!"

Right on, James. I hope you get your wishes. I am seeing some of mine come true in you, and I am so proud.

Seeing this brought tears to my eyes--high five James! That's awesome!

Aw! I love it when our kids do something as small as blowing on a dandelion. Something that so many other people don't think about or just take for granted but we stop and realize it is a big moment that took work to get there!

High Five from me too! Love seeing those accomplishments of things that were hard for them to do before!
