Plans and Pancakes

This past Saturday morning while Gustav was at his men's Bible study, the kids and I sat down to some steaming whole wheat banana pancakes and some exquisitely sweet cantaloupe and a little conversation. Here's how it went:

Gretchen: When I grow up, I am going to marry a man I like. He's going to make a lot of money and we'll have a big house.

Gabriel: I'm going to have one of those long things with the water that you race on.

Me: A slip and slide?

Gabriel: Yeah.

Gretchen: And we'll have 6 kids.

Gabriel: I'm going to have TEN kids, but no wife.

Everyone: (giggling) You can't do that, Gabriel!

Lillian: These pancakes are so yummy!

Gabriel: They are soooo good I'm gonna throw up!

Me: Thanks, honey.

Lillian: Did he just say he was going to throw up?

Me: Yes, but I think he meant it as a compliment.

Me: Nicholas, what do you want to do when you grow up?

Nicholas: Aaahhhh...Welll...I might be in the military. Or maybe I'll go into I.T........just joking.

Me: (laughing hysterically) Good one, Nicholas.

Gabriel: I'm going to be a navy.

Nicholas: You can't be A navy, you are IN the navy.

Gabriel: No, Nicholas, I will be A Navy!

Everyone: Lots of laughing.

I think every family needs a four year old.

Too cute! I love conversations like that. Kids really are great entertainment (well, most of the time, at least). Visiting from WTM board....
