A sideshow at the birthday party:
My little three year old comes up to me with a green silk scarf...
"I need you to tie this awound me so I can be a magician."
"Ok." I tie the scarf around her - no easy task because she keeps twisting her entire body to look over her shoulder.
"I need you to hold still so I can tie it."
"I need to see if you are doing it wight."
Once the scarf is tied to both of our standards she says,
"Gweat. Now I need to cast a spell on something."
She looks around furtively.
Next, I see her standing in front of a painting in the living room with a fork.
"Abwa Cadabwa - make this picture disappear!" She says with a magicians flourish... then...
"Hey. Why that picture still there?" She looks at the fork in her hand and mutters to herself, "Maybe because this not a weal wand..."
