"Mom, why can't I be a four-year-old girl yet?"
I replied, "You will turn four years old when your birthday comes."
She continued, "If I sing a birthday song can I be older?
If you buy a birthday cake for me and Dad and
Pon and you say,'Happy birthday,
Bee!' and If I blow the candles out, can I become four years old?"
I smiled and repeated the answer.
Although she might not be in a hurry,
time feels to go to slow for everyone once in a while.
