What is it about dandelions? When most adults see it as a wildflower at best, or a nuisance weed at worst, a three year old is automatically drawn to the dandelion. I think it's the bright yellow that suddenly pops up, dotting the landscape. It suddenly feels like spring when the dandelions make their first appearance. It's an opportunity to pick a few flowers for mommy.
This picture also exudes Eloise's spirit. She's never been crazy about wearing shoes, but that sweet laugh as she kicks her shoes off and runs through the grass barefooted reminds me that they're only little once and the joys of their childhood are too precious to worry about carrying her shoes back in every day.
