Conversations with Courtney

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!

That is so funny! I wonder what your hair will look like when you are a grandma too?? She is right though husbands can be disgusting sometimes. :)
