More Conversations with Ada

I think this is going to be a reoccuring thing on my blog, "conversations with Ada."  There are just so many things I want to record!!

The chosen topic of late is, "when I grow up," and the conversations go as follows.

"When I grow up, I am going to be like Barney.  John, you can be like Baby Bop.  Mommy, do you want to be like Barney like me?"

"When I grow up, I am going to be a red sucker."

"When I grow up, I am going to be a baby in your tummy."

"When I grow up, I am going to be like Jesus," --Ada.   "That's great, Ada, Jesus will help you to be like Jesus," --mom.  "No, I am going to be like Jesus in the book.  It's going to be dark in there," --Ada.

Can you imagine what it's like to truly believe that when you grow up you can choose to be anything--food, characters in a book, cartoon characters?  The possibilities are endless.

I LOVE "Conversations with Ada". Please keep them coming. I also love the photo of Ada and John on Monday's post.

Your Father's Day post was wonderful, as was Scott's.

Abby Jane's version of "when I grow up" is, "When I get a _____, can I ______?" i.e. "When I get a mama, can I wear makeup?' "When I get a baby, can I eat Puffs?" I LOVE Ada wanting to be a sucker, though- now that is imagination!
