Last evening Wayne and Carson were out in the front yard tossing the football back and forth. Wayne tossed it a little too far for Carson one time and Carson had to go and get the ball in the neighbors yard. As Carson was walking back to the house he happened to look down on the sidewalk and there was a little ceramic star....kinda like a ceramic tile. Carson comes running into the house screaming that a STAR HAD FALLEN FROM THE SKY! He was so excited and truly believed that he had found a fallen star! So I tell him that this is a special, magic wishing star, you know when you see a falling star you make a wish. He was so proud that he found the star and he gets to keep it forever! We have to make a special star pocket (like on Dora) to keep his star in and we will have to make sure it is safe every night.
I love his sense of wonder and amazement and that he truly believes that this is a real star from heaven for him. I only wish that we as adults could grab a hold of that belief and amazement. Just think how much nicer the world would be if we all had something magical to believe in and weren't so cynical. If you truly think about it, wasn't the world a nicer place when we were kids and still believed in Santa, and the Tooth Fairy. That there really was magic, and make believe. Ahh to be five again!
