My best conversations with my kids happens one on one. They express their thoughts and views of the world to me more freely when it’s just us conversing. Here are a few of the more funny and interesting conversations we’ve shared in 2010.
Dude: Only four more months.
Me: Until what?
Dude: Until I move to China.
Me: Why do you want to move to China?
Me: Princess you are so cute and so sweet. I just don’t deserve you.
Princess: So you will never ever boss me again?
Me: Uhhhh….that would be a negative.
Dude: I know what a Sphinx is. It has the head of a man and a body of a lion. They live in Egypt.
Me: Wow! That’s right.
Dude: Camels live in Egypt too. Camels spit. (Dude laughs like a boy who has just discovered that spitting is cool)
Princess: Mom I had a dream about personal space at school.
Me: Smile and open my mouth to respond….
Princess: It wasn’t a funny dream Mom.
* I’m grateful for every moment I get to spend with my children, my family and friends. But I can’t help but be ecstatic that we have reached the end of 2010. This year has been full of trials and triumphs. (Mostly tough trials) I’m wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a brighter New Year. *
