Moira is Ready to Turn Three

Moira had been anticipating her birthday with the typical pre-birthday excitement.
She has been talking about her hopes for Hello Kitty scones,
Hello Kitty hot chocolate, Hello Kitty cake, Hello Kitty...

Until this weekend…
She has been complaining of her leg hurting lately. 
This is no surprise.  I remember having bad leg cramps as a little kid.
I still have them on occasion.  Gillian gets them often.
I was messaging & stretching her leg that was giving her trouble.
I told her that her body was stretching out & growing up, since she was turning three soon.
I said that she was getting growing cramps.
She started crying a bit. 
That night she cried when I tucked her in & said she didn’t want to be 3.
I asked why not.  She said she didn’t want the cramps to be owie.
I prayed for her, that her legs would feel better soon. 
She added, “and don’t let the cramps bite me.”

Thinking about that as I left her room, I realized what she thought was happening.
The next day she was still very sad about her birthday coming so soon. 
She was not looking forward to it.
So, I told her that cramps are when her muscles are worn out.
She did not have crabs in her leg. 
A smile broke out across her face & she started laughing.
Now she is ready to turn three tomorrow.

The end of the year interview is complete.
I am not sure about some of her answers.
