Jaydon discovers his first dandelion

“What’s that?” Is a question I hear every day as the father of a toddler. And I am more than happy to answer every single one of his questions.

Today Jaydon and I went to our local park. It was actually warm and nice outside and we were getting a little stir crazy cooped up in the house.

After climbing the jungle gym and sliding down the slide Jaydon decided he wanted to walk the perimeter of the park. That’s when he came across a lone dandelion.

Jaydon, “What’s that?”

“What’s that,” he asked.

I said, “It’s was a dandelion.”

Now most of the time Jaydon will quickly move on or askeds other questions about his surrounding but this time he decided to stay and quietly take a good long look at the plant.

Daddy, “It’s a dandelion.”

I’m not sure why he was so interested in the dandelion but one thing that impressed me was he did not attempt to touch the plant.

After a moment or two Jaydon decided he was done examining the dandelion and turned to walked away.

    Will Daddy show Jaydon how to blow on the Dandelion next time? I was anxiously awaiting that picture of the cute little fellow experiencing that phenomenon!

    I love dandelions. As a kid I’d pick them and give them to my mom as a bouquet. Five Iron Frenzy also has a song called “Dandelions” that I like listening too.

    Great photos to go along with the post too. Awesome.

      I tend to have the camera option on my smartphone ready at all times when I’m with my son. You never know when you’ll get that once in a lifetime photo opportunity.

      Jaydon seems to be intently curious about a lot of things. He will at times just stare at something as though he is trying to figure it out.
