Dandelions are FIERCE

Yesterday, Bean was wandering around saying over and over that she wanted me to tell her the story of "Daniel and the Dandelions."

I would have.  I really would have.  Except I had no earthly idea as to what she was talking about.

Bean's a pretty clear speaker, and she was definitely saying Daniel and dandelions. 

I kept trying to make up stories about my brother, (the only Daniel we know), running around in a field of dandelions. 

And she kept cutting me off saying, "NO!!  DANIEL AND THE DANDELIONS!" 

When I wouldn't, (rather, when I couldn't) tell her the story she demanded, she contented herself with setting up her dinosaur figures and making them run away from a mysterious spot on the carpet while shrieking "AHHH!  THE DANDELIONS!"

I really thought our summer was pretty low key.  But apparently she had a run in with a bunch of dandelions that really stuck with her.  

And then Shaun came home and said his hellos.  Immediately, Bean ran and grabbed her pink Bible and thrust it at him saying,

"Read me the story of Daniel and the dandelions!" 

Shaun and I looked at each other, puzzled.  Impatient, she repeated herself.  All at once, we got it.

"Daniel and the den of LIONS!"

She looked at us both with a completely bewildered expression and said, "Yes! Daniel and the DANDELIONS!" 

I'm just glad that we don't have to worry about an irrational fear of small yellow weed flowers.  


  1. I was going to laave you a comment about how we are studying that in Connections and how for sure she was referring to that but then by the time i got to the end of the blog it was clear you figured it out. What a cutie! Aedan is still obsessed with The Baby Moses story :)

  2. That is SOOO cute!! Ashleigh keeps asking to hear Bible stories about the Philistines. I think she's obsessed with "war stories." It's funny what they pick up!

  3. That is such a cute story! I seriously think you should submit it to like Reader's Digest or something. Priceless!!

  5. It never fails to amaze me how we are the crazy ones when we dont quite get what they are telling us. Very cute story!
