Wonder in her Eyes

Eva was laying awake in bed when Eric got home from a meeting tonight. He went in to give her a hug and kiss goodnight, and was invited, in the sweetest of manipulation tactics, for a cuddle. As he lay in the dark with her, this conversation ensued:

Eva, touching her eye: What's this Daddy?
Eric: Well that's your eyelid.
Eva, still groping around her eye: No, no what's this Daddy?
Eric: Your eyebrow.
Eva, in her best schoolteacher voice: No. OK, close both your eyes and cover them. You'll see magic!
Eva, covering both her eyes, voice full of amazement: I see sparkles, Daddy!
Eva, a second later covering her eyes again: This time I see jewels!
