Yesterday in the car (and recapped tonight at dinner):
Grace: I wish that I could be a kid forever and that you could be a mommy forever, too.
Me: But I will be your mommy forever
G: Not when your a grandma
m: When I'm a grandma, I will still be your mommy.
G: But I wish you could stay just like that. You're gonna get older and older and older....Next year I hope that you can get the first wish bone so you can wish to be a mommy forever and I will get the next wish bone so that I can be a kid forever.
I don't know where the fear of growing up has come from lately, but she often expresses a desire to be a kid forever. I want to, too!
Today, again in the car:
G: Do you know that they have phones that have a GPS?
G: I wish I could get one of those, that would be really cool.
M: oh, yeah...
I don't know where she thinks she will be going that she needs her own cell phone with a GPS...I tell you, those advertisers know how to get their message across. Jesse has also said that he wants a cell phone for Christmas...nope, sorry, you can have one when you can pay for it yourself!
