The County Fair is in town and admission is free this year, so I walked with the munchkins to the fairgrounds tonight to take them to the talent show. Before we went, I told them that we were going to take them both later in the week for the rides and games - we already bought the special ride-all-you-want wristbands, but for tonight we were going to go, watch the talent show, walk around for a bit, have some ice cream and come home. The talent show was interesting - some good, some not so good, one horrible act. Both kids enjoyed it. Then we walked around, looked through the art booths, had our ice cream and started home, talking about rides they want to ride the night we go, etc. A perfectly pleasant night out. On the walk home, the stars started coming out. difficult child stopped to make a wish - then ran to catch up with easy child and I. When I stopped in his room to tell him good night he told me he wanted to tell me what his wish was - he said he wished he could find a way to pay me back for "all the nice things" I do for him. Can you imagine? I really didn't even know what to say! He swears that truly was his wish! Jeesh!! Of course, I told him that he doesn't have to 'pay me back' at all - that I do fun things with and for both of them because I love them. But, it sure was nice to hear that he used his wish on me, anyway!! I hope he wasn't fibbing - or motivating me to spend more the night we actually do go! Hee hee. Just had to share! PS: Please don't anyone pinch me.
