I Want To Be Four Years Old

When Bee was three years old, she asked me with a worried look,

"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.
