Last night, at Pappasito’s (yes, we’re off the cabbage soup diet! yay!), Joelle asked for some pennies to throw into the fountain. I gave her four. On the first penny, she said, “I wish for my parents to have 10 anniversaries.” On the second penny, she said, “I wish for a star to come down and play with me tonight.” She threw in the third and fourth at the same time and said, “I wish for these pennies to go into the fountain.” I loved hearing her wishes and didn’t dare warn her that you aren’t supposed to say wishes out loud. Who made up that ridiculous rule anyway? After she was done, she gave me a sad look and said, “I wish I had the pennies back.” I guess my daughter, like her mommie, won’t be a gambler.
