Little 7aki: I wish I had fairy Godparents.
Little 7aki: So I can wish for anything and it would come true.
Me: What would you wish for first? (I asked while waiting to see what toy she wants).
Little 7aki: I would wish that Daddy stops smoking.
Me (stunned) : Wow! What else would you wish for?
Little 7aki: I wish that you would never yell at me. (Well she dropped her sister off the couch, so I yelled, hehe)
Me: What else?
Little 7aki: And I would wish for lots of hugs and kisses.
Me: Hahahaha. But you get lots! Sometimes you run from me and I have to chase you to kiss you.
Little 7aki: Well I want more.
Me: I will give you sooooooooo many you are going to ask your fairy Godparents for me to stop.
Little 7aki: Moooooooom.
Little 7aki: I love you .
Me: I love you too.
My little 7aki just turned five on Friday. Wise beyond her years she still wishes for immaterial things, like the time she wanted to throw those coins in the fountain.
Little 7aki, my love for you grows stronger and stronger with every passing day, with every word uttered by you, with every night we snuggle in your bed and read together. My love still grows with every time you frustrate me with your stubbornness, every time you cry and every time you push my buttons, especially when I tell you, stop pushing my buttons, and you say, mommyyyyyyyyy, where are your buttons?
You are my baby and will be my baby forever, although now when I take you places you don’t cling to me, you push me to leave. Oh how much you grew.
I love you my little philosopher.
