Sometimes I Pretend…

Sometimes I pretend I am just going about my business like adults often do, not paying much attention to their kids. But I was just pretending, I didn’t want her to feel self-conscious, nor did I want her to see the expression of complete incredulity on my face. I kept loading the trunk of the car while she exclaimed, “Mommy! A wishing flower!” She plucked out one of these wispy looking weeds from the lawn and spoke her wish out aloud, “I wish for magic so that we get so much money that Mommy and Daddy can stay home with me and play and never have to go to work again.” Then she proceeded to blow the wispy petals away. It was certainly one of those moments that you can only experience with a five year old.

She is really enjoying being five too. She said, “Mommy you can’t believe how incredible it is to be five. I can draw a starfish, a coconut tree, a shark, a dinosaur and I can jump down two steps at a time. I am loving it!”

Little does she know how much I am enjoying her five year old-ness!
