"I Wish…"

We went to our local nursery yesterday to pick out the Christmas tree and Char was roaming around inside with Lily, who is four. Lily, who couldn’t be more girlie if she was painted pink, spotted a small fountain and asked for some change so she could make a wish. Char dug around a bit and handed her a dime.

Lily stood with the dime held up and pinched between her fingers, closed her eyes and said, “I wish… I wish I was Strawberry Shortcake!” In went the dime.

I’ll let you know how it turns out.


  1. That is so cute! Totally sweet. I have a three year old. Aren’t they charming?

  2. My wife’s expecting. If our child is a daughter and half that cute, I’ll be a useless pile of mush for the next umpteen years.
