What Would You Do With a Robot?

Last night Joe took Aravis with him to get water. While driving in his truck Aravis stared out the window watching an airplane blinking in the dark.

She said, "You know the other night I saw a shooting star. I made a wish, but it didn't come true." (disappointment)

Joe asked, "What did you wish for?"

She sighs and says, "To wake up in the morning and find a box by my bed with a robot inside."

"What would you do with the robot?" her daddy asks.

"Build a lab."

She makes me laugh in a super proud, deeply mommy kind of way.
