Do Snowflakes Listen?

Do snowflakes listen? The weather has been back and forth lately… one day it’s a cold winter’s day and the very next is a beautiful spring day.  Yesterday is was 65 and sunny and this afternoon it began to sprinkle snowflakes.  My 3 year old, Lily has been excited for spring to come and when she looked out of the window to see snowflakes today, she was surely confused.  She looked at me and said, “Mom, do snowflakes listen?”  I looked at her smiling and said, “Yes, they can sort of listen.”  She proceeded to open the back door, walked outside and in her tiny 3 year old voice began talking.  She said, “Hey snowflakes, it’s almost spring time so can you not come any more?”  Then she told the snowflakes that she had “seen a butterfly and that that was all.”

And yes, my heart melted.  I hope you heard her snowflakes…
