Out of the Mouths of Babes

The following is a brief transcript of a conversation I had with my daughter yesterday around 3:30 p.m.:

Me:  Hello

Daughter:  Where are you?

Me:  At the store, why?  Where are you? (Thinking she was at my house to visit).

Daughter:  Still at work.  You know you have to check up on old people because they can come up missing.

Me:  I'm not that old, yet.

Daughter to youngest son who was with her:  Tell Granny what you said.

Grandson:  [something about buying me] a doll.

Daughter:  Did you understand him?

Me:  No.

Daughter:  Say it again, slowly so she can understand you.

(Admittedly sometimes I cannot hear clearly on my cell phone.)

Grandson:  I said, Can't we just buy her a doll?

Daughter:  I told him tomorrow's Granny's birthday and he said, "Can't we just buy her a doll?  That's all she wants."

Me:  Awwww... tell him I love him.

Daughter:  He can hear you, Mama.  I have the speaker on.

Me: Oh [acting my age].  I love you Logan.

Logan:  I love you too, Granny.

Logan at age 3 months, June 3, 2006, in Granny's doll room/office

Logan is now a 7-year-old first grader at the school where my daughter teaches.  My husband and I were the "daycare providers" for both grandsons from their ages 3 months until they were enrolled in Mother's Day Out at age 3.   They have been around my dolls all their lives and probably consider it abnormal for people not to own them or just normal for people who do.

I love dolls, but my children and grandchildren are my greatest gifts.
