At preschool, Cookie earned a treasure from the treasure box for writing her name at home and taking it to school. She was so excited and came home with a little red capsule that looked like a pill. (worried me for a minute actually!)
After dinner we placed it into a clear cup of water and waited. A little while later a horse shape came out of the capsule and I had Cookie rinse the rest of the jel cap off of the red horse. I then suggested she take it out and go play with it.
Imagine my surprise when she started crying! She says “I want to leave it in there so it can grow big!” I explained that it wasn’t going to get any bigger to which she really started to sob and says, “But MOM! I want a friend to ride and play with. That is too little! Put it in the water some more!” Poor thing! She has left it in the water and hopefully forgotten about it for a little while, but how am I going to explain!!
