So I was chatting with Andrew and Bethany this afternoon. Abbigail was finishing her homework...I wish she had been in on this conversation.
It all started out because Bethany was snuggled up to me and I told her I don't want her to grow up, I want her to stay my little girl forever. Then I started thinking about it...no, that is not what I want. I will miss her little girl smile, giggle, and snuggles, but I know her grown up smiles, giggles, and hugs will be equally as wonderful. I asked her if she wants to grow up, and she said "Yes, when I get bigger I'll grow up. I'm getting bigger right now from all those biscuits and gravy." (We had chicken pot pie, and I make it with biscuits on top of the yummy chicken and veggies, she just thinks it's biscuits and gravy.) Any way...I asked her what she wants to be when she gets older and she said she wants to be a mommy with big boobies...only my daughter. She wants a husband (that's good). I asked her if she wants a to have a job that she goes to, and she couldn't think of anything. I started listing off things like nurse, secretary, doctor, chef,etc...and she said she wants to be a doctor.
I asked Andrew what he wants to be when he grows up, and he said he wants to be a husband. I asked who he wants to marry and his answer: "A girl who doesn't have a husband" Ok...good criteria! I asked him what he wants to do for a job and he said that he is going to stay home and take care of child care children like I do...he thinks it's just all playing! He then went on to tell me that he's going to have 10 boys and 10 girls, and "definitely a dog!" LOL!!! I told him that he might mention the 20 children to this non-married gal before he asks her to marry him. I also informed him that his 20 children will probably want to eat once in a while, so he might want to consider a job that pays a bit more than childcare...like being Donald Trumps protogee. :o) (Is Andrew possibly the little old man who lives with the little old woman in the shoe...and all 20 children...and the dog?)
Oh, the things that come out of their mouths! :o) Love their imaginations!
One more thing...while driving somewhere the other day, the kids apparently saw a spider on the outside of their window. They started discussing different spiders, they thought maybe the one on the van was the dreaded "Daddy Long John" spider. LOLLOL!!! :-)
