Me: Rae. R-A-E
Emily: R-A-E. Okay. I know your last name H-U-*-*-*.
Me: Good job, spelling, Em!
Emily: And, how old are you?
Me: Super old. 3-9. 39
Emily: 3-9 (still writing on her doodle board).
Andrew: It's going to be a long time before you're a grown- up, Emily. You have to have lots of birthdays before you're a grown- up.
Emily: Like, 10?
Me: Slow down, y'all. You don't want to be an adult just yet, do you?
Emily: Yes! When you're an adult, you can do whatever you want!
Me: I don't want you two to be adults. Can't you just stay my babies?
Emily: No! We want to be grown- ups. You can have another baby.
Andrew: Or, Emily can grow up and have a baby for you. Only Emily can have babies because she's a girl.
