A conversation with Chloe

Chloe: Why isn't there a Sister's Day, Mom? We need to have a Sister's Day.

Me: Hmmm. I don't know why there isn't a Sister's Day. Maybe we could have our own.

Chloe: No, I think we should just have our birthdays be our special day. We don't need to have a Sister's Day.

Me: Okay. That's a good idea.

Chloe: Besides, everyone will be a mother or a father when they grow up, so they'll get to have Mother's Day and Father's Day when they have kids, right?

Me: Yes, most people will, you're right.

Chloe: Well, they have to choose to be a mom or a dad. If they choose that they don't want to be, they just have to be a doctor or a dentist or something.

  2. Love deep thoughts by young minds. Conversations with my kids often push me into a realm of...WoW, I never thought of it that way.

  3. Chloe is so funny and inquisitive! Reminds me of Kanoa...after the weeks of Mothers day/my b-day/hanks b-day/fathers day...I guess K was worn out. He exclaimed, "When is it going to be Children's day?!!"

    (we laughed & said every day is children's day..minus the presents)

  4. Very cute. And I'm intrigued by her understanding that we choose to become parents. I'm not sure I had connected those dots when I was her age. Not that the dental or medical fields were in any danger of my opting for them instead. Oh, mercy, how the world was spared!

  5. So cute! One day Chloe will learn that most moms are also dentists and doctors, they just aren't paid for it!

  10. Too funny. I love how their little minds work. Christian didn't want to tell me that he changed his shirt in the middle of the night because he pee'd through his pull-up (that is a liquid craze kid). I already knew, but I was trying to get HIM to tell me. I said, "why did you change your shirt?" After a few answers like, "Because I did," and "I don't remember" I got: "Because a big bug was in my bed and ate holes in it." All that to avoid telling me it was because he pee'd.

  11. How did you get 101 followers?
    And yes, doctors get all the perks. How did Chloe get to be so smart?
    What happened on the house? I'm on pins and needles.
    Well, mostly needles, I worked today {wah}.

  12. That is hilarious... tell Chloe that Doctors can be Dad's... Nate told Andrew that he had to call him "Dr. Dad" from now on.

    Hilary, I can assure you that Dr.'s don't get "all the perks". After Nate just came off a 30 hour shift with no sleep and only sitting down for 30 minutes to type notes and eat a dognut... I think that he is still looking for them too. He got a lot of 'Thank you's' and smiles, so I guess that's all the perks he gets right now. Yeah for residency.

  13. How CUTE! Those poor people who choose not to be a father or mother and then are stuck being a doctor or dentist. Because that's how it works. I love it. First you make a conscious decision whether or not you want to be a parent and everything else comes after that. :)
