Zeca and I were cuddling in her bed tonight and I thought I would make a little conversation...
Me: So, Zeca, have you thought of anything you want for Christmas?
Zeca: I want a little pink car I can drive on the sidewalk.
I try not to sigh audibly because she has mentioned this before and we are not buying her a Barbie Jeep to tool around the 'hood.
Me: Is there anything else?
Zeca: Yes...I want a pretend bloody finger.
Me: A pretend bloody finger, huh?
Zeca: Yes...and this (she brings her hands together and then pulls them apart).
Zeca: You know?
She makes the motion with her hands again and, suddenly, I get it.
Me: A slinky?!
She makes the motion with her hands again, smiles and says, "A slinky!"
