My son loves to help out in the yard. He loves to plant seeds and flowers, and he likes to help me pull the weeds in the Spring.
I have explained to him the basics of garden weed-pulling: make sure you get the roots out, so the weeds stay gone.
Turns out, he likes to help at school, too. Here is what he told me this morning:
"Mom, guess what? I like to help the gardener at school, so whenever I see one of those flowers that you make a wish on - what are those called, danny-lines? - well, I always pull it out of the ground and I make sure I get all the roots out so it won't grow back, and then I make a wish and blow on it!"
. . .
I hope he is wishing that all those dandelion seeds won't grow into dandelions...
