Lily: "MOM! Something REALLY bad happened today at school! You won't believe it!"
Me: "What on earth happened Lily? Tell me!"
Lily: "WELL...... Janie (name changed because I don't remember the name)...you know Janie right Mom? Well Janie BROKE HER LEG and had to come to school in a wheelchair! And she couldn't even stay all day!"
Me: "How did she break it?"
Lily: "at ice skating lessons!"
Me: "That's awful. I hope she's ok."
Lily: "Yeah...that's awful." thoughtful pause "Mom?" (I knew what was coming.) "Mom? I wish that I could broke my leg! Then I could be in a wheelchair!!! Mom? Can I take ice-skating lessons? Please????"
Postscript: She also wants her teeth to come out as soon as possible. Despite these tendencies, she has quite the low pain tolerance. She's highly sensitive, you know....highly sensitive.
