I was reading a friends blog and saw her post for Say What Wednesday and decided I had to participate. Tuesday morning Emma woke up at 5:30...that's really early for her. I was in the bathroom getting ready for work (I have to be at work at 7) and this is our conversation.
Emma: mommy why do you have to go to work?
Me: Emma do you remember the bouncy ball I bought you Sunday and the belts and all the other stuff I get you all the time?
Me: Well I have to go to work so I can make money to buy you all those fun things.
Emma: I have money in my piggy bank.
Me: you sure do
Emma: you can have my money mommy
Me: that is so sweet Emma but I can't take your money and besides I think we need a lot more then what's in your piggy bank for mommy not to work.
Emma: but it's really heavy and I can use my money to buy you some money
Me: laughing, Emma that is so sweet, I just wish it were that easy because if it were we'd have lots of it and so would everyone else
Emma: (barely stopping to hear what I said above) and I can buy you a pink piggy bank just like me and daddy a blue one because daddy is a boy
Me: still laughing and said yes daddy is a boy
She then got sidetracked playing. I thought that was the sweetest conversation...if she only knew. It's moments like these that make you stop and think about how innocent kids really are. It's absolutely priceless!
Hope your all having a great Wednesday...we're halfway to the weekend.
