The imagination is a beautiful thing, and watching your kids develop theirs is one of the great joys of parenting. This usually manifests itself in the what if game. What if I had a long tail and could hang from trees? What if I had an eye on the back of my head? What if I belonged to a different family that didn’t have other sisters or bossy parents?
Gabrielle (age 5) got a very serious expression on her face today, which always means a doozy is coming up. She said, “Dad, what if I had a super big tongue. Like a whale’s. Then I could lick the whole world.”
Now, no father wants to think about his daughter licking the whole world. But a whale tongue? Seriously, gross.
