An Old Conversation Worth Telling

Oh my gosh, I have been looking for this for two years. TWO YEARS!

Two years ago, my son and I had this sweet conversation.

And I wrote it down specifically so I could blog about it.

Today, I am doing some Spring Cleaning (because it’s officially SPRING…squee!) Even the weather is cooperating. And it’s supposed to snow again next week. I don’t want to talk about how upset I’m going to be.

Anyway, under the filing cabinet and covered in dust I found the piece of paper I scribbled this conversation down on, and now I have to blog about it.

September 15, 2012 (My son was 3 years old at this time.)

Noah: “Oh, it looks like I have a baby in my belly because I ate so much food!”

“I’m gonna grow a baby in my belly for me to kiss and love and sleep with in my very own bed.”

Me: “Aw, that’s what Mommy did! I grew a baby in my belly for me to kiss and love and sleep with in my very own bed and it was you!”

Noah: “Yeah, and then I will eat lots of food and grow a baby in my belly and then the doctors will make a big cut in my tummy and then the baby will come out of my bottom and I will cuddle it and sleep with it in my very own bed and hold it all the day.”

Me: “That’s so sweet, Noah. How are you a little person now?”

Noah: “Because I AM a little person. Mommy, you are so funny. You know lots of little persons.”

Me: “You are my favorite little person.”

Gah, three year olds. So cute. Also, this kid has been talking about wanting a baby since he was three.

Happy weekend and Happy SPRING!

    Hi, I am that Brazilian mom who got in touch with you one year ago… Everytime I have some time in my hands, I read your blog, the texts are so precious!!! Thanks for sharing…
    This conversation is so cute! My 4 year-old daughter has also been talking about wanting a baby… until last week, she used to say she wanted 3 babies and had even names for all of them… now she decided she will have 4 babies. Because of my “surprise” face, she explained:
    – Now I am 4 and I want 4 babies… when I turn 5 I will want 5 babies…
    And yes, baby number 4 has a name too… :)

  3. I love that the idea of a doctor making a big cut in his tummy is NOT a deterrent to him at all.
    You must make being a parent seem THAT special.

    Well done, mama.
