Recent Conversations

on school -

Madeline: Mommy, when do I get to go to school?
Me: when you're 5.
Madeline: When will that be?
Me: After two more birthdays.

Madeline thinking....
Madeline: Will you go to school with me?
Me: No, I've already been to school.

Madeline thinking...
Madeline: If you don't go to school with me, who will help me write my name?
Me: Your teacher will.
Madeline: He doesn't know my name.
Me: Your teacher will know your name.

More thinking...
Madeline: Who will help me write my letters and read books?
Me: Don't worry, Madeline. Your teacher will help you with everything.

This little conversation warmed my heart. She's already worrying about school and she thinks I'm her #1 helper. I'm so glad I get to stay home with her and teach her how to write her name and write her letters. That day of kindergarten will be a sad little day! :)

on a baby sister - (I let her get two books at the library about baby sisters - Angelina's Baby Sister, and Arthur's Baby. I might need to screen our books more carefully)

Madeline: Mom, I'm going to have a baby sister.
Me: Oh really?!
Madeline: We just don't know her yet. She still lives with Heavenly Father.
Me: Where will we get this baby sister?
Madeline: From the grocery store.
Me: (That would be convenient! :) )
