A Coversation with Sophia

I love riding in the car with the kids. For some reason it seems like we spend a lot of time driving in the van (maybe because I hate to be stuck at home with all 4 kids:) So, today I picked the twins up from school and as we were driving this is the conversation we had...

Sophia- "Mom, I don't want to be a pilot anymore when I grow up."
Mom- " What do you want to be then?"
Sophia- "I want to be a mommy like you."
Mom- " Are you going to be married?"
Sophia- "Yes, my husband will work at Gymboree with me and walk the babies in a stroller."
Mom- "How many babies do you want?"
Sophia- "I want twin girls. And I want twin boy babies. And I want a big girl like Elise (the 5 yr old we take home from school)
Mom- "Will you let your kids get a dog?"
Sophia- "Yes, but we need to have a big house." ( this is the reason I tell her we don't have a puppy)

Cute, huh?

Darn, I was hoping for cheap airline tickets. Oh well, at least she and her husband will get great discounts on kids clothes. I'm not sure I'd approve her marrying a guy who works at Gymboree though.

Hilarious!!! I love it! And I tell Maddie the same thing about a pet - when we get a bigger house that has a yard that the pet can play in. That is probably the one and only reason I am glad we haven't been able to sell our house yet.

Oh my word--Mark, you kill me! :-)

And I am glad she feels that a child like Elise would be a good addition to her family! :-) We are never sure what kind of impression Elise will leave on people.....
