When I was putting E. to bed tonight he decided to do some magic.
"Mommy, I have to make you disappear. I'm going to put my bear blanketover your head and make you disappear."
"Did I disappear yet?" I asked from underneath his favorite toy and faithful friend.
"No. I have to say the magic words. Ala ca zap a ba gaga!"
E. removed the bear blanket with a flourish. I saw a split second of hope on his face and then utter disappointment.
He sighed, "I guess I need more practice."
