Driving down the road last week, I overheard this conversation in the back seat:

Elayna: "...and there will be 3 Mommas and 2 Daddies in our house. And there will be a baby and I will born the baby!"

Emmy: "Hey! I'm NOT A BOY!"

Elayna: (pausing for a moment) "There will be 4 Mommas and 2 Daddies! I didn't call you a boy!"

Emmy: "But I'm not going to be a Momma. Mommas have stretched out skin all over their tummy and I don't want to have that."

Me: *Cough*Choke*

Elayna: "But... EMMY!"

Emmy: "And besides that, we are NOT going to have babies, we are going to be WORLD EXPLORERS, remember? You can't be a world explorer if you have babies!"

Elayna: "Well, I changed my mind."

Emmy: "You CAN'T change your mind, Bean! You HAVE to be a world explorer!"

Elayna: "Yes, I CAN!"

Emmy: "But Bean, we're going to have the *Yellow* explorer truck! The YELLOW one, Bean!"

Elayna: "No, we're not!"

Emmy: "Yes, we are!"

Elayna: "No, we're NOT!"

Emmy: "YES WE ARE."

At this point I was chuckling and they were giving up on each other.

Yeah, my oldest girl declares she's not gonna be a mommy. She's gonna be a Mexican cook. Then while helping me cook ( against her will) she told me she was gonna be a cook that didn't have to use smoke ( steam).

Rachel - LOL! That's so cute! Usually Emmy tells me she wants 5 babies. At least our girls have the chance yet to change their minds a few times while they dream and the opportunities for them are as endless as God's resources. For that I'm thankful!
