My daughter can do magic !!!

Purim is getting near, and this year, our eldest daughter Gal (almost 3) is going to dress up as a fairy. So yesterday we decided to try out the costume - pink dress, purple skirt on top of it, purple wings, silver crown and, inevitably - silver star-tipped wand.
Once she was completely dressed she started playing with her wand, in it went more or less like this:

Gal: Hocus, pocus, bili-bili-bocus: Grandma and Grandpa.
(nothing happens)
Gal: Where are Grandma and Grandpa ?
Ma&Pa: Huh?
Gal: Where are Grandma and Grandpa ???
(our little brains try to understand why she suddenly starts asking about her grandparents. after a minute or so, the smart of us gets the point)
Ma: Were you expecting Grandma and Grandpa ?
Gal: Yes - I said "Hocus, pocus, bili-bili-bocus" and Grandma and Grandpa didn't come!!!

(At this point I understand what's going on. So I step aside, secretly call Grandma and Grandpa, and ask them to come, and give us a call when they're outside so she can conjure them again, and this time succeed).

Ma: You know, you need to practice a lot for this kind of spells to succeed. Come on, let's practice...

(After half an hour, and a phone call from Grandma and Grandpa telling us they are outside)

Ma: Come on, let's try conjuring Grandma and Grandpa again
Gal: Hocus, pocus, bili-bili-bocus: Grandma and Grandpa.

The face she did when she saw them entering the house, was worth all the gold in the world...
