“Mama, Can I Have A Car?”

(Deep intake of breath because in my wee little mind, my three year-old shouldn’t want a car yet – right?)

A: “Where did you get your car, Mama? I want to get one. Did you get it at Fred Meyer?”

Me: “No, we bought it from Grandma Sharon (that is why it is a gold camry!) But you have to be older to drive a car.”

A: “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! I want a car.”

Me: “You can use your small car in the house to drive.”

A: “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! I want a big car! Just say “okay” mama, just say “okay.”

(Park. Open car door. Shut car door. Pretend conversation didn’t happen! – We really have to start taking the bus more!)

  1. oh my, they are something else, aren’t they?

    My 5yo dd recently asked “mama, those things you get on your face when you are a teenager, do they hurt?” me: “braces? on your teeth?” her: “no, mama, on your cheeks!” Yikes- she meant pimples! I don’t fuss over my appearance, I don’t primp. Where on earth did she get this from! I think it came from a friend who has a teenaged sister. eeek!
