We were outside on a warm spring day in North Carolina, and we have tons of dandilions in our front yard, and so those fuzzy white flowers were popping up everywhere. My mother was with my 2 1/2 year old daughter picking them up, and began to explaining that if you pick one, you have to make a wish and then blow it. If you can blow all the fuzzies off, your wish would come true.
So my mom demonstrated and said "I wish I would get a big hug and a kiss", then blew the whole thing away. So, my daughter then gave her a big hug and a kiss. My mother said "See, my wish came true"
My daughter then picks one up, gripping it tightly with both hands, closes her eyes real tight, and said "I wish I could blow this flower"
