Reality: daily life

From a First Grader, as she walked out of the Music Room door at the end of the line, back to her classroom:

Leslie*    I want a little sister.

Me          Really?  Little sisters rock, you know. 

Leslie*   Well.....I want Mommy to have another baby, but she said that I'd have to ask Daddy, 'cause he makes all the rules.

*Leslie is, of course, not this hopeful big sister's real name.
