This is a conversation that Middle A and I had the other day. We have many cute, strange, and funny conversations around here. I need someone to share them with, so I choose you! Aren’t you so lucky!?
Soooo......I want a tree house.
Yes. One with bars I can climb on. Outside in our tree so I don’t get hurt.
Yes. How can I get one?
Maybe you could ask Daddy to build it.
[gasp] I have my own tools!
(She’s referring to a toy tool bench).
Wow! You do!
I have a hammer, and stickers (nails), and I can help Daddy build it!
Sounds good to me, kiddo!
That night, she woke up in the middle of the night looking for her sheep. Sheep is her favorite stuffed animal. She sleeps with it every night. We found sheep and I started to tuck her back into her bed, but she got upset and started kicking the covers off.
I want to sleep in my sleeping house!!!
Yes. I want to sleep in it.
Honey, I don’t know what that is.
Outside! I want to sleep in my sleeping house.
OH! Your tree house?
Yes! My tree house.
We don’t have a treehouse yet.
I have to ask Daddy to build it?
I can use my hammer and my stickers?
I love you so much, Mom.
I love you too, sweetheart.
