Yeah. All Wee One wants to know is how long she's going to have to wait until she gets my jewelry.

When I was around 10 or so, I asked mom and dad if I could have the house if they died. Not the stuff in it, just the house. go figure...

A child's world is pretty narrow. I would've voted for the t.v. over my parents when I was small. Definitely. ;)

I recall after WWII, when I was a wee one and toys were scarce, my cousin Rosalind received a beautiful wooden refrigerator, sink and oven with doors that opened. These were large sized so the child could stand and cook in this magnificent play world. No one I knew had ever seen or could afford such a treasure. I asked my mother why Rosalind, who by the way was a year younger, had received such a precious gift? My mother said, "It is nice gift, but remember she has no mother." My thoughts, "who cares? She has all this 'stuff'." Kids go figure...

Christina: At least she is waiting until you achieve room temperature. My daughter just "borrows" things. Shoes and jewelry, that is.

My three-year-old was devasted Friday because his best (imaginary) friend, Dylan, died. (And yes, the conversation took place barreling down I-20 going 75 MPH.

Saturday, he was happily playing with (imaginary) Dylan again.

But he informed me, oh so seriously, that original Dylan was still dead; this was a new Dylan.

Should I be worried?

Maybe WE'LL move to Florida...ever think about that???

Seems like that would be the easiest path to solving all those questions.

I remember asking my grandma 20 years ago if I could have her microwave when she died.

I don't want it now. I'm surprised the thing still works.
