I've been wishing for a lot of things lately. That's not to say I'm unhappy with my life at all, there are just a lot of little things that keep entering the, "wouldn't it be nice if.." category. Here are a few of the things I've been hung up on.

Warm weather, everyday
A swing set for my kids
Big, straight, white teeth
Some really cute yet COMFY clothes (how do all my friends have these? Where are they finding them? You know - those, "I wasn't even trying today - yet somehow I look awesome," clothes)
A new jogging stroller
A new morning dress (remember, that's a robe)

The other day I was reminded just how easy it is to get these things. Maddie was outside playing with a neighbor, and he handed her a fuzzy dandelion. They then proceeded to make wishes together. He wished that his toy car would crash. He dropped the dandelion, grabbed the car and chucked it. (Wish granted). Maddie then grabbed her dandelion, and said, "I wish, I wish with all my heart (Thank you Dragon Tales) for a great big heart."

I tried really hard not to laugh out loud. I mean, a great big heart? Only Madelyn. She wasn't even asking for the "caring" type of heart, either. She just wanted a big heart of some sort. I'm assuming a stuffed animal? I was chuckling to myself about this when I noticed her with a confused look on her face. She turned to me and said, "So, uh, now what? Does it just fall from the sky?"

Can somebody please contact me if they see any falling swing sets, teeth, clothes, strollers or robes? Thanks.

Lou, free swing sets are on craigslist and ksl all the time. They're not perfect though. Do you want me to keep an eye out?

First of all - you have beautiful, stright, white stop wishing.
Second - I think we are ready to give up our swing set and we were thinking about putting it up for sale on ksl...but if you want it - come and get it! BUT it is HUGE and made out of wood - so it would require some muscles and a truck and some disassembling to get it there. Let me know!
Third - that cute Maddie has a big heart already! She's such a cutie!

Haha! I love it! Maddie just cracks me up! I wish those things did fall from the sky... Wouldn't that be nice??

Oh what cute things that Mattie says. I would love if things fell from the sky! I think it would be awesome if you donated her hair. I have usually done it to locks of love, they do the wigs for kids. What a great thing for her to do!

Laughed till it hurt watching the videos and then read this and am in pain. Reminds me of the "put the card in the wall and the money comes out" days when you were young. Hilarious!

I do love that Jude! I have a not so secret crush on him too. I need to remember to keep my wishes to a minimum, I am wishing for a house these days but I know it will happen soon enough. PS I get most of my clothes at Gap Outlet (not to say I am one of those friends but if I am, Gap Outlet is the best)
