“I wish… I wish.” This is what I hear from my two older children. When I get catalogs from companies such as American Girl or One Step Ahead, I immediately hand them to my children and exclaim, “Look at what you got in the mail!” It’s fun. It’s also very fun to listen to what they say about the items. At first my daughter would say, “I wish I could have this doll, Mommy. I wish.” Now it’s more like, “I wish I could have all of this, Mommy. I wish.” She says this while swirling her little hand over an entire spread of toys. We all dream. I still dream.
“I wish I could have this kitchen. I wish.”
