Me: "Ada, did you know that I used to be a teacher?"
Ada: "A teacher?"
Me: "Yes, I used to get up and go to work every morning just like Daddy does. I taught about good books."
Ada: "You used to be a man?"
so, now I am trying to explain that women work too, not just men ;)
And this morning in the car we passed a fire truck with the sirens blaring.
Ada: "look mommy, a firetruck!! Where is it going?"
Me: "probably to help someone."
Ada: "a man or a mommy?"
Me: "what do you think?"
Ada: "a mommy"
Me: "maybe so"
Ada: "will they check her belly button or her ears?"
hmmm...good question, Ada.
Okay, have to come back and add this one
Ada: "Mama, are you going to be an Ada some time?"
Me: "What do you mean?"
Ada: "When I'm a mom, will you be an Ada?"
Me: "No, when you're a mom, I'll be a 'Near' "
