blooming pencil marks

i have an actual BLOOMED flower in my flower bed today.
in the middle of february.
how crazy is that?!
last week brennan asked me what the pencil marks were on my forehead?
and then later that day he said i had them on the sides of my eyes too.
"just like when i draw with a pencil."
this is what he said.
then he traced them with his fingers.
i LOVED it!!!
b/c i thought he was so smart for being so aware.
so loving for tenderly tracing my wrinkles with his little chubby fingers.
i told them those were the wrinkles he and makenzie put there, bahaha!
little pieces of them i get to take with me everywhere i go.
then he told me to erase them.
not so easy kid!
when he got out of the bath the next night he had pruned fingers and burst into tears b/c he didn't want the wrinkles on his hands forever.
here i thought he would love them b/c i had them.
oh the mind of an almost 4 year old.
