A couple of weeks ago Cameron and I had a marvelous, easy, fun week thanks to a gift he made for me.
That, my friends (and random strangers on the internet searching for lucky jewelry) is a bona fide wishing necklace. It’s made out of wax covered colourful strings … can’t remember what they’re sold as, but they were a hit.
Skeptical about the power of a waxy wishing necklace? Let me TELL you how effective this was.
Cameron was so eager to show me that his gift was really a wishing necklace that he did everything in his power to make wishes come true. The key is, of course, in effective wishing.
“Gee, I really do wish that my son would eat this whole plate of raw vegetables.”
“I wish that Cameron would do his pushups for karate practice without me asking him – ten good, alltheway pushups.”
“I sure wish that Cameron would eat some salad tonight at supper.”
“I wish that Cameron would go get in the bath all on his own without my help.”
“I wish that Cameron would help me and pick up his toys so we can vacuum.”
Each time he would literally jump to cheerfully do as I asked, so long as I held the charm of the necklace while I was wishing.
Best of all, at bedtime,
“I really wish my son would know just how much I love him.”
“I do Mama, I do!”
