Caitlin and I went to the grocery the other night to pick up a few things. She made sure she had her Little Mermaid backpack strapped securely to her back, just like Dora.
On the way, her sweet little girl voice from the back seat illuminates the dark.
“Mommy I just want to grow up and have two babies.”
I ask if she is having the two babies at the same time.
“No, I’m gonna have a girl baby! Her name is going to be Nana.” (I guess she had second thoughts about twins. Can’t say that I blame her.)
“I’m going to go to the doctor’s office and close my eyes and then I’m gonna have a baby in my belly cuz that’s where you go get babies.”
We talked a little more and I told her that she would be a great mommy some day. I also asked her if she still wanted to be aÂ teacher when she grew up.
“I want to be a teacher, a mommy, and a doctor!”
