Some children are not meant to grow up fast..nor will anyone make them. You would think June, at 5 and a half, and in Kindergarten, would know that you don't really turn into a cat if you drink out of the cat bowl. She continued to ask us how she could become a cat yesterday, and that was the answer we gave her. She thought about this all evening as we were out running errands. At one point she even shouted hopefully, "that means I get to stay up! Phoebe and Lizzie always get to stay up with you and Daddy!"
When we arrived home, and the rest of us had forgotten the "cat talk", she ran into the laundry/mud room, knelt down, and sipped (like a cat) two slurps out of the bowl (yuck!) before Dayne yelled at her to "get outta there!" And she was quite upset that she didn't magically transform right the and there!
...and we want our children to grow up faster?! No way.
