Skylar: Look there's the first star! Know what I wished? I wished for Eden to be good and nice. Either good or nice, both are OK.
Me: I wish for YOU to be good and nice. (The kid has been quite the turd lately)
Skylar: (ignoring me) Eden say "Un"
Eden: (the incredible parrot girl)Uh
Skylar: Good! Now say "Deux"
Skylar: Yay Eden! Good job! Did you hear that Mama? I teached Eden her numbers in French. I think I got an extra surprise with my wish. I wished for her to be good or nice, and my wish made her good AND nice AND smart too! The smart was a surprise on top of my wish!
Aww, I guess I got my wish too. At least for a few minutes.
Life is complicated.
