The Scene:Â I am outside with Brooke.Â She’s drawing with a piece of chalk about the size of a marble.
Me:Â “Brooke, let’s go inside now.”
Brooke:Â “Wait, Mom.Â First I’m making this chalk disappear.”
I wait some more.
Minutes pass.Â Brooke continues doodling.
Finally the chalk runs out.
Me:Â “Okay.Â Let’s go inside.”
Brooke stands up and dusts herself off.Â As she walks inside I hear her say to herself in a tone of wonder and amazement, “Wow.Â I’m a magician!”
