Kira likes butter
Yesterday we were running errands and Kira found some of the first dandelions of the season so she picked them. She was sitting in the back seat of the car and she was yakking away about how she loves the smell of dandelions and she can't seem to smell them enough, blah blah blah. I looked back at her and she had two dandelions stuffed up her nose, the stems dangling. I told her to stop it. I was grossed out thinking of all the teeny tiny bugs that live in dandelions. So she yanked them out and then did the "Mama had a baby and her head popped off" thing and flicked the flowers off the stems. Only she did it when we were stopped at a stoplight and she flicked them out her window and aimed (and hit with surprising velocity) the driver's window of the car right next to us. The guy in the car was flinching like we were shooting at him. Relax, guy, its just an obnoxious 9 year old with dandelions. He probably saw them in her nose.
We got out at the bank and I looked at her face and all around her mouth and nose was bright yellow.
