Party Time For Daffodils!


P1040614This post comes to you as part of Sian's ‘Storytelling Sunday’ over at ‘From High In The Sky’. Do pop over & check out some more of the stories on offer!

What seems like a lifetime ago, I had two very small boys! At the time of this story Alex was just three & Nathan was a baby of six months.

images  This particular spring day
  I was driving the boys
  home from playgroup &
  we were queuing in traffic
  alongside a grassy space,
  covered in daffodils all in
  full bloom & bobbing
  about in the breeze.



9 Alex @ 3Alex was gazing out of the car window, so I said  “look at all those daffodils dancing. Do you think they’re having a party?”.  To which he replied  ”I think so, but I wonder which one’s birthday it is?!”

I was so glad that we were stationary in traffic as I was able to lean across & give him a big hug there & then!

Don’t you just love how children see life as so uncomplicated?!

Thanks for stopping by & do come back soon Open-mouthed smile

Yes, the simplicity and joy they see in any given situation is fantastic!

Indeed it is wonderful, and they are obsessed with birthdays aren't they!

I think my daughter is just coming out of that stage - she is now just as likely to say 'don't be silly Mom daffodils don't have parties - they can't eat jelly and ice-cream'.

What a cute story! When you are that age, birthdays are a huge deal so it would have been an important question to ask.

Hi Sandi,
What a wonderful story… It reminds me of my childhood years when my grandma and I would go in the forest to get some. My favorite flowers…
Children have such a cute way of looking at things. It's priceless.
Have a nice Sunday,
Cheers from France

If we could all continue seeing the world the way we did as small children - full of wonder and delight and amazement - the world would be a much nicer place!

Yes, I love that kids usually seen things through optimistic eyes; we need to do that more often too.
