out of the mouths of babes
My daughter came home from preschool today with three drawings addressed to her. A little guy in her class drew her these pieces of art at home and presented them to her today. They are really cute!!! Since we live in a small community, the chance of these two spending their childhood/adolescents together is quite likely. As I mused about the future the following conversation took place.....
Me: I am going to save these pictures.
My girl: They are very nice. Henry drew them for me.
Me: I know. I am going to keep them - just in case.
My girl: Why mama, in case of what?
Me: Oh I dunno, maybe one day he will be your boyfriend.
My girl: - bursts into a fit of giggles - Oh mommy. He is just my friend.
Me: That is what they all say....
My girl: I don't need a boyfriend mommy.
My girl: I already have a little guy to take care of (she is referring to her little brother) and I DO NOT need another.
I think I peed my pants a little.......
