Also last night, my 7 year old was getting ready for bed and asked me:
"Mom, when I get old, can I come and live with you?"
"Sure you can!", I said. And I really meant it, even I know HE won't want to when he gets old.
He clapped his hands together and said, "YES!".
Then he asked me if my mom will be living with us, too. I told him, "You'd like that, huh?"
He said, "That would be funny. 'Baba, Gaga (my dad, who is 82 years old now), it's time to get up!' ".
Yes, he still thinks my parents will be around then.
Later on last night, my 3-year old got out of bed:
"Mom, I don't want to get any bigger, but I keep getting bigger!"
"OK! We'll figure out something to do about that in the morning!"
"It's not going to work!"
"Time for bed!"
My 11-year old is growing up, also. He's grown into that, "I'm a cool middle schooler" age. I'm hoping this will end soon!
