Here are a few cute and sweet random conversations from my son this week. Five years is such a prescious time, on the cusp of being a little boy, but with an imagination that doesn’t stop. This post was sparked by the following conversation:
“What are you doing, Mommy?”
“I am going to write my blog.”
“Oh, good! Can I help?”
“What is it going to be about?”
“How much I love you!”
“Aw, Mommy, I love you, too!”
“Look, I am going to write ‘Mommy’!”
So, I showed him how to type: Mommy
And he carefully considered what I have shown him, and typed: abb3322114455
“I like you in my sight!” is my favorite new compliment.
“I like you in my sight, too!”
“Aw, thanks, Mom!” he answered.
I picked him up from daycare the other day, and informed me he had a girlfriend now.
“Tell me about her.”
“She wore pants.”
“What is her name?”
“I really don’t know that.”
Ah, true love!
“Mom, before I can go to bed, I have to feed my kittens.”
“Yes, my kittens. There are five of them and they are invisible.”
“Okay, go feed your invisible kittens.”
“Thanks, Mom.” He comes back, “Uh, Mom…”
“One of them threw up.”
“Is it invisible?”
“Okay, I will clean it up after you go to bed.”
After screams had subsided from the backseat while I was driving is home in heavy traffic: “Mom, sister isn’t my friend anymore. Maybe she can be some day, but not now!”
“Mom, I have something important to tell you.”
“Yes, baby?” I stopped what I was doing due to the seriousness of his tone.
“When Poppy asked Branch to share his food with everyone, he didn’t want to.”
“I know. Sharing is nice, but he was worried they would eat all his food. What would you do?”
“I would make a magic wand so everyone could have food.”
I love this age, as I have loved him since he first kicked from inside. Every day raising him is a true blessing to me, even when I am tired and he is on fully charged internal batteries. I hope we can always have such great conversations.
