Curly's 6th birthday is at the end of this month. I've asked her a few times if she can think of anything she'd like to receive, but she always says more crayons?. I told her to think on it and get back to me.
This morning, Curly approached me apprehensively. I could see that she wanted to tell me something but was trying to work up the courage to do so. Finally I asked her, "What's up?"
"You know how you asked what I wanted for my birthday? Well, I thought of some stuff. But you don't have to get me all of it."
Here it comes, I thought. A trip to Disneyland? A pony?
"I thought maybe I could have some more paint and colored pencils. And maybe... some markers?"
"That all sounds great," I told her. "Can you think of anything bigger?"
Curly breathed in a deep sigh, then asked, "Stickers? I promise not to put them on the tables and stuff."
Oh, to be 5-turning-6 again!
I think all of her birthday wishes are going to come true.
