So we just started reading Aladdin: or, the Wonderful Lamp during dinner. Despite the ornate and difficult language, the boys were absolutely transfixed. We ended just as Aladdin discovers the power of the lamp so I asked the boys what they would wish for, if they had the lamp.
Ben wanted a window seat so that he could sit on his windowsill and read books.
Nikki wanted a magic key so that every night it would place on his bed whatever he wished for as he was falling asleep.
Me? I want to transport the family to a villa in the south of France (or on a tropical island) and enough money that we could all be together.
