Conversations with a 4 Year Old

November 18, 2014

You never know how your conversations with a toddler will turn out.  It is seriously one of the joys of parenthood – random conversations.  Claire is full of randomness, just like her momma.  She has quite the imagination and you never know what she may say.  Earlier this week, while using the potty this was our conversation:

“Mom, when I get older will I have a house of my own and have to move out of our house”

“Claire, one day you will find your handsome prince whom God has set aside for you and you will fall in love with him and get married and you will want to Make a home of your own with him.  You and he will live together in your house, but Mommy and Daddy’s house will always be your house and you can always come home”

“Well… I don’t think I want to leave.  I don’t know how to drive”

“Claire we will teach you how to drive when you get older”

“But Mom!  You have to teach me how to use that curling iron first!”

Ba ha ha!  She cracks me up!

Earlier in the week she saw a tow truck with another truck on the back and wanted to know what it was.  I did my best to explain to her what a tow truck was.  She then says:

“Mom, when we get to heaven will we drive there… or will we fly?”

I sat in thought for a moment and before I could answer her she said …

“oh I know, God will just hold our hands and take us there”

It was really one of the sweetest moments ever.

Then today she topped it off by saying, “is this the end of the world?” I was thinking she meant this moment in time and then she clarified – “no, Tennessee – is Tennessee the end of the world?”

The Tennessee lover that I am wanted to answer her “yes!” ha ha.
