“Is it time yet Mommy?” Molly asked
“Not yet Molly. Why don’t you go outside and play with Buttercup for a while?”
Molly went outside to play with Buttercup like Mommy told her to. Boy did she love Buttercup. He was a big yellowy colored dog that Mommy and Daddy called a golden-treever. Molly remembered when Daddybrought him home. Daddy asked Molly what name would be good for him. Molly thought for a minute and came up with a very special name for her new puppy.
“He is Buttercup, Daddy!”
“Buttercup” earned his name because he was yellow and Molly loved yellow because it was the color of so many beautiful flowers.
Molly picked up a ball and started throwing it to Buttercup. Playing catch was one of their favorite games. Molly would throw the ball and he would bounce after it, pick it up and would always bring it back to Molly. Buttercup would drop the ball at Molly’s feet hoping that she would throw it for him again.
After what seemed like they were playing catch forever, Molly decided to go into the back yard and pick some pretty flowers for Mommy. Buttercup wanted to go too, so he ran in a big circle around Molly as she jumped over sticks, twirled like a ballerina, and hopped like a bunny. That was the fun way to get to the back yard.
When Molly finally finished dancing her way into the back yard, she saw that Daddy was outside watering the garden.. Molly didn’t really like that garden. It wasn’t pretty because there were no flowers – just yucky vegables!
Molly went to her favorite spot in the back yard under a big maple syrup tree. She picked five beautiful flowers for Mommy, because Molly was five, called Daddylions. At least that’s what she heard Mommy call them. They grew around the tree all the time.
“I wonder what Mommylions look like?” she asked herself aloud. “Maybe they are the white fuzzy ones you blow away.”
