Wishing on a star

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

Lilian was super excited when she realized that we were outside as the sky was darkening. 
"Mom," she said..."I can wish on a star tonight!"
She's been anxious about wishing for days now but usually by the time she thinks about it the sky is already full of stars.  And as everyone knows, the wish is only good if you wish on the first star that appears.
Excitedly she made a wish.  And then another and another and another.
"It's okay if I make lots of wishes, right Mom?"

I wish....
That I could be a princess
That I could be a fairy
That I could drive when I am little
That I could have red eyes like a vampire
That I could go to Disneyland again someday
That I could be a superhero and have hot lava come out of my hands

I didn't have the heart to tell her that the "star" she was wishing on was really an airplane....

oh, well, no. I guess you were right in letting her little mind "believe". The first airplane/star of the night goes along with Santa and the bunny in the folklore of human childhood.
