Make a wish

On the weekend my four year old was tasked with cleaning his room.

As always, he tried everything possible to get out of it, and became distracted quite a few times.

The more he continued to procrastinate, the more my wife and I intensified our directions.

It got to the point where he wasn’t allowed to leave his room, or play with ANYTHING!

A few moments later I walked past to see how he was progressing. I was surprised to see him standing in the middle of his room with his eyes half closed talking to himself.

I just had to ask what he was doing.

He responded, “I’m wishing”.  I just had to then follow-up, “What are you wishing for?”.

“I’m wishing that my room was clean”.

If only things were so simple.
