This morning while in the bathroom getting ready for the day:
Courtney: "When I'm a mom what will you be?"
Me (with a smile): "A grandma."
Courtney: "What will your hair look like?"
Me: "I don't know, sweetie."
Courtney: "First I have to learn how to drive. And pick my work. (Long pause.) And then I can have my babies. Then I can bring my kids to your house to play."
Me: "Yes, but Court you are missing a very important part."
Courtney (pulling a face): "I know, but I don't want to say that cause it's discusting!"
Me (laughing): "What's so discusting?"
Courtney: "A husband!"
Me: "Honey, a husband isn't discusting!"
Courtney: "What will Clay be?"
Me: "A grandpa."
Isn't it funny how a little five year old mind works! I love hearing her sweet perspective on things and to know what she is thinking about. She got upset with me when she watched me run and get my notebook so I could jot down what she had said. She didn't want me to tell anyone, so everyone shhhhhhhh!!! I told her that I love the things that she says and that I don't ever want to forget it so I write it down because I love her and it makes mommy smile!
