Heat Wave…

25 Jun

A funny story:

A few days ago, we were all four in the car, driving home from some errand.  Somehow our conversation with Ella turned from where she wanted to go to college (I encouraged Hawaii, because, hey…who wouldn’t want to visit there?) to her eventually moving out of the house.  She totally freaked out about this.  She was crying because apparently we are so cool that she wants to live with us always!  We told her it would be a long time before she would move out, and by then she wouldn’t want to live with us.  Still a no-go.  We told her she could live with Audrey, and they BOTH said no!  Which is a little extra funny, because they love each other so much that Audrey can’t go to sleep when Ella isn’t in the room with her.

Eventually, when we explained that neither mommy nor daddy still lives with their parents (Grandma & Grandpa, Nana & Papa), she decided maybe she would find a boy to marry.  She immediately decided upon Drew, her best boy friend.  Then she said, “Well, I don’t know what he’s going to look like when he’s older.”  And what do you say to that?  No, honey, I guess not.  And right after that, she said, “What if he finds a different girl to marry?”  Well, I guess that’s possible, too.

But at least she stopped worrying about moving out.  At age 4.
