Out of the mouths of Babes
My daughter and I were driving around today and had lots of errands to run and things to buy. It was going to be a long day in the stores for her. Well, it was only going to be a couple hours, but for a four year old, that's a long time. Her birthday is coming up and I guess she was thinking about what she would like for her birthday. And, truthfully, I don't have anything for her yet. So, I was excited when she said, "Mommy, do you know what would be the perfect gift for my birthday?". Me--"What?" "I'd like to be treated like an adult for one day." As soon as she said, "I'd like to be treated like. . . ", I assumed the rest of the sentence was going to be "Princess". When she said adult, I was a little taken aback.
In all seriousness, I asked her if that meant she'd like to pay the bills, cook everyone's food, do all of the shopping, wash and fold everyone's clothes, do the dishes. . . . She said "Yes". Alrighty then! Do you think that I'd really be able to get away with giving her that for her birthday?
Kids are so funny!
But, I really do need to buy her gift!!! Her birthday is 10 days from now!
