wish

Jude and I went back to the garden center this weekend to get seed starting medium and to visit the fairy garden again.  Okay, the real reason was to visit the fairy garden.  They have a pond in the center of the greenhouse and people have been throwing coins in for wishes.  I tried to explain to Jude the concept of a wish.  I said, "It is something you really, really want to happen."  I gave him a coin and I asked him, "so what do you really, really want?" He thought for a moment or so and got a big smile but said nothing.  So I asked again, "what do you really, really want?"  In his sweet little boy voice he said, "to throw it."
