Visions and Dreams

Seren for a few months now aspires to be a "Grammy". In a class project, everyone had to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up. There were princesses. Firemen. Policemen. Pizza makers. And doctors. And Seren wanted to be a "Grammy".

Two nights ago, this came up again. So I asked her about it. "Why do you want to be a Grammy? What about a Mommy?"

"I don't want to be a Mommy. I just want to be a Grammy."

"Why, sweets?"

"Because I don't know how to have a baby, Mom. I don't know about that."

"Well, no one knows what it is like to have a baby until you have one."

"I don't want it to hurt. I think I'll just be a Grammy."

:) How do the kids get these ideas?

Meanwhile, since the kids and Sam came back from Flint, Wyeth continues to talk about "Jo Jo". Sam and I have no idea who or WHAT Jo Jo is. But he makes a daily appearance. It isn't an imaginary friend. Because sometimes Wyeth will be talking (and he is a chatty Kathy TOO!) and he will burst into laughter, finishing the story with "JO JO!".

I'll keep you informed if we ever figure out who or what Jo Jo is.

Speaking of imaginary friends, I asked Seren how "Strawberry and Snoozy" were doing. (Those are the pink elephants that live in the back yard.) She said that they were "fine" and that they would be "back" for the summer.

I'll let you know how they are doing when I see 'em.

I can't wait to find out more about Jo Jo! You are so good at capturing the everyday hilarity of parenthood.
