A conversation during bath time this evening...
C: "Hey Mom! I'm more than half way to 10!"
Me: "That's true. But don't rush to being 10. Let's just enjoy being 5."
Me: "Well, I don't want you to rush to grow up! Because now is so much fun! And eventually you'll get really big and grow up and move away, and then I'll miss you."
O: "But then you can still take care of me and the baby! And that will make you happy, right Mom?"
Me: "Right! But I hope C will still come and visit even when he's grown up. That would be nice too."
"...but I might forget where you live."
