I had the opportunity today to talk with her during my break between work and classes. It was so great to hear her little voice on the phone. I'm amazed at how much she knows and how her personality is shown through what she says to me. I asked her what she wanted for Christmas and she had the cutest response. "I want 2o things. Actually more like 10 because 20 is too many." I asked her what and she said, "I don't know. I haven't really thought about it. I'll think about it." She's 6 by the way. So after that she wanted to play I SPY with me. I told her I couldn't really play that since I couldn't see what she was looking at. So she decided we were going to play a guessing game. She would think about something and give me clues so I could guess what it was. Then it would be my turn. I apparently was being too easy and she kept telling me to make the things harder. The funny thing is she would actually guess what it was. She guessed everything from a traffic light, to a stop sign, to a parking lot, to a mountain, to the sun, and even a mermaid. When the mermaid came up she said, "but Monica, mermaid's don't actually exist". I thought that was the cutest thing ever. When I had to go to class I told her I would call her later and she said "ok and we can keep playing the game, and it'll be my turn".
I can't wait to have my own kids.
