I have such distinct memories of doing the "butter test" when I was a child.
And, since we spied the first buttercups of the Spring on our walk the other day, Jack initiated Gracie into the ritual.
It's simply this: You hold a buttercup below someone's chin. If their chin turns yellow, they like butter. (Um, yeah... who doesn't!)
The secret yellow glow is either the result of sunlight reflecting off the super-shiny petals of the buttercup, or, as I speculated, magic.
However you look at it, it's a ritual that's definitely worth passing on.
And I really do believe there is magic in those little moments shared, especially the ones that bring you back to your own childhood. Don't you?
