"So I went to go see Daddy at the hospital today."
"AWW! You got to see Daddy and I didn't?! That's not fair!!! I NEVER get to go see Daddy!"
"Sorry babe. But even if I took you, you wouldn't be able to see Daddy."
"Because you are not old enough."
"WHAT? I am eight years old. That is plenty old enough. I, am an adult!"
"No. No you are not an adult. Not even close."
"OK, maybe I'm not. But I will be soon!"
"Oh yeah? What constitutes being an adult?"
Wait... What?! I stopped in my tracks. I could not help but start to giggle.
"So you think that having boobies is what makes you an adult?" I say between giggles.
She is giggly now too. "Yes."
"No babe. You don't just one day sprout boobs and then suddenly turn into an adult. There is way more to it than that."
Kaylee is laughing now. "Sprout boobies?!?!"
I am sure she is having visions of boobs popping up on her chest in the way that a new seedling pushes up through the soil as it grows.
I am almost in tears by the time we get home. And this was only a five minute walk people. A five minute walk! She really can crack me up sometimes.
Kaylee can not wait for the boob fairy to bestow upon her a pair of boobies. The bigger the better.
I, on the other hand, can wait a lifetime if it means I get to keep my little girl just a tad bit longer.
