My daughter's three wishes

Thursday, March 14, 2013

My six year old recently went through a battery of testing and we went to the out-brief on Tuesday. One of the questions they asked her was if she had three wishes, what would she wish for. Her wishes were:

1. Crayons and paper to draw with.
2. A cat.
3. When we move to West Point, that my daddy gets a good job and is successful.

Needless to say, Jill and I were pretty surprised by her answer! Sometimes our little girl girl isn't so little any more. She is a real character and keeps us on our toes.

    What a great set of wishes. Kinda makes you think a little. Kids don't need to be spoiled, the smallest things make them happy.

    Great! (I wrote some of my daughters' geniuous moments in a little notepad that is now in a keepsake with all sort of little things I collected for them... my intent is to give it to them ... when I become a grandma! - hopefully I have another 10 years before that happen ;0))
I am sure you will look after wish #1... #2 is commitment! ... and as for #3 you are on your way there!!!
Keep working hard on your edits - I can't say I know what you are going through... (I just did a Master with thesis!) but I edited an international book on leadership in the military a couple of years ago and it was a very challenging task! ) but your determination and discipline will pay off - I am convince of that - so your daughter will be all emoticon with her wish #3 coming to reality!

    Children are smarted then we think. They are like a sponge absorbing everything. Knowledge and what is going on around them. They say some funny ,surprising, things. They will pick up on your moods and actions, and your habits. Sounds like she likes to draw and loves cats, and maybe knows Daddy needs a good job to make life better. You know the best thing about kids they give you inspiration. I hope Daddy gets a great job and she gets her cat, paper and crayons. Wishing you a great day ,and a great new start, and allot more inspiration from your child.
