The Power of Magic

How do I make his dreams come true?

 

The Bear loves magic. I mean, really loves magic.

It intrigues him, fascinates him and leads to him trying to copy tricks he has seen.

So I bought him a wand.

A magic wand.

A black one with white tips.

He took a toy, closed the door, waved the wand, said the magic words…….and………opened the doors.

Oh. The toy was still there.

‘Mummy, this wand is broken…it doesn’t do magic’

We went to the Sooty show.

So he bought a second wand.

This time a really big one that lights up.

We arrived home. He took a toy, closed the door, waved the wand, said the magic words…….and………opened the doors.

Oh. The toy was still there.

‘Mummy, this wand is broken…it doesn’t do magic’  ‘How many magic things do I need for the magic to work’?

A few nights later, The Bear asked if we could visit a wishing well.

‘What would you like to wish for?’ I asked

‘I can’t tell you Mummy as then my wish won’t come true’

‘Perhaps Mummy can help your wishes come true’?

‘I would like to wish for a magic wand that really works’

‘Oh’ I said

‘And I would like to be able to fly’ he said………

I am doomed!

I know one day I will tell him this story, when he works out that the magic comes from the person, and they are tricks.

But for now, I will enjoy the innocence of childhood and ponder how I can make these dreams come true.
