Star light, star bright...

As Erin was walking into the house last night this was what she said:

Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I want tonight

I wish I could make the whole environment clean, and there was no trash on the ground.

I have the most wonderful life.

Those were her exact words. I came in, and immediately wrote them down in her baby book so that I would never forget them because I just thought it was so sweet. She is always so concerned with the "environment" (something she learned about in pre-k), and she gets very upset about litter. But when I heard her say that she thinks that she has a "wonderful life" I just wanted to melt. It was so unprovoked and sincere, and she was standing there looking up at the stars as she was saying it. She is my angel.

She truly is such a special little girl. You are so lucky, but of course, you know that :)
