Wishes.....

They're supposed to be fun right?? Well lets go back a few days.......

Last Thursday after Em got her ears pierced and was screaming bloody murder. I was trying to calm her down and comfort her. I noticed an eyelash on her cheek. I said to her "ooh lets make a wish" she looked at me funny. I explained that if she made a wish and then blew the eyelash off my finger it would come true. She closed her eyes and wished hard. I reminded her she had to keep it secret or it wouldn't come true. The tears stopped and she was calm once again.

Fast fwd to last night.

Jim comes running downstairs with Em in his arms. She is crying and he is saying something about telling me because I was the only one who could fix it. She sits on my lap tears rolling down her face. She says to me:

Em- "after I got my ears pierced, my eyebrow fell off and I made a wish.....I'm scared.
Me- " Em, calm down, what?"
Em- " remember after I got my ears pierced, my eyebrow (eyelash) fell off and I made a wish. I don't want my wish to come true. I am scared. CRYING so hard.
Me- " Em, what did you wish?"
Em- " to go to the moon" CRYING HYSTERICALLY NOW!!

Trying not to laugh, its so cute-one of her tears fell on my hand and I made up a new rule. If your crying and a tear falls on someone else you can trade a previously made wish. Phewww! I saved the day.

Can you imagine, her lying in bed crying because she was afraid her wish would come true. LOL
