Sweetie girl: I saw you in your wedding dress today, mom.
Me: Oh yeah? In the picture book?
Me: Would you like to wear that dress someday?
S: Sure! I used to be a mom. (“used to be a…” is the latest phrase, and wedding dress = mom somehow)
Me: You did? Did you know that you get to be a flower girl in a wedding soon?
Me: Do you know what a flower girl does?! All the people sit in the church, and you get to wear a beautiful dress…
S: Your dress?
Me: Sure (smile)… if you want to… and you walk down the aisle with a basket of flowers, and you get to throw the flowers while you walk.
S: I don’t want to be a flower girl. I just want to be a mom.
Me too, sweetie. Me too. 🙂
