Eureka! I’ve figured out that the best way to learn what’s on your child’s mind is to take him to a lovely water fountain and give him ten pennies. Last night I learned that my 4 year-old son would like a dog, to be allowed to play outside when it’s really late, to go on another trip, for everyone to always be nice to each other, for it to be Christmas every day, a bunch of other things I can’t remember and a baby sister. Gulp!
