Conversations with Grace

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?
M: yeah...
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!

Isaac is the same way...you can check out some of his quotes on the side of my blog. My favorite one is when he saw a picture of a baby being delivered...he gulped and said, good thing I'm a boy! I told him his wife would have a baby and he looked at me all confused and said,"remember mom, I'm NOT growing up, so I won't have a wife!" Silly me. I love your Christmas tree! So pretty! Kyle and I haven't talked about getting a Christmas tree...a little painful subject...but I have gotten over it and am enjoying my tiny little shrub! The kids don't care. Your tummy is not as big as you say it is! You are a cute prego mommy. I'm glad your Thanksgiving was yummy! what Sweet potatoes recipe did you use? I'm always looking for a good one.

I love the things that comes out of little people's mouths. What a cutie. That is so funny that Grace wants a phone. Kalyana's been begging me for one too.

Haha! I love that she thinks she needs a GPS - good luck with that one.

And the wishbone comment about you being her mommy forever is priceless!

That is so funny. I love kid conversations. The hard part is not cracking up when they are being totally serious.
