There's no quote more precious and smile worthy as those uttered from the mouth's of babes, especially our own : )
While cleaning my home office I came across a forgotten journal. Inside were noteworthy quotes from my children. This one from my son, then three, now ten (sniff), I thought I'd share.
My son woke up one morning and raced into my bedroom all excited, "Mom! Mom! I just saw you flying under the moon!"
I rubbed the sleep from my eyes "Awesome, did I have wings?" I asked, hoping he wouldn't say I wore a pointed black hat and straddled a broom.
His brows scrunched as he tried to remember. "No, " he said. "But next time, take me with you."
And I realized that right there, as children's writers, is what we all hope for, to take the readers flying through our worlds, our stories. Weeeeeee!
See? Magic really does exist.
