this morning's conversation while on the way to school

It's part of my daily morning routine to drop the kids off at school. Sometimes we ride in silence, but today we had a pretty lively talk. I forgot how the conversation actually started but here is a snippet of it. I forget so many cute things that the kids say, but I definitely want to remember this one :)

Anna: When I grow up I am going to have my own house with my own family.
Me: Oooo, can Mama go visit you?
Anna: Sure!
Will: When I grow up I am going to have my own house with my own family.
Me: Ok, can Mama go visit you too?
Will: Yes.
Me: Will I have my own room?
Anna: Yes you will have your own room, but you can sleep next to me.
Will: You can sleep next to me too.
Anna: What about Baba?
Me: I don’t know. Maybe Baba will just stay home in Rohoboth.
Anna: My house will be next to your house.
Will: My house will be next to your house.
Anna: Mama’s house will be in the middle. Then when I want to visit, I will just drive over. I will bring my kids.
Me: Hey Anna, your kids will call me Grandma.
Anna: Why?
Me: It’s just like you call Mama’s mama Grandma.
Anna: I will still just call you Mama.
Me: Ok.

  3. Hmmm...I wonder why I never have conversations like those? Maybe I should stop yelling all the time...
