When we are in the car or on walks, Lillian likes to imagine about her future. She has a whole house planned out with several swimming pools and maids that will take you to Chuck*E*Cheese anytime you want to go.

She wants to wonder who she will marry and what she will do. She has decided to be a princess mermaid. Then a teacher and right now she wants to be a singer. No matter what she says she wants to be, she says "but I will me a mom, too. Because I want kids." We have talked about getting married before you can have kids and that you can do whatever you want to do and have kids too, if you want.

The other day she said something about having kids and it occurred to me that maybe she wouldn't have kids for some reason. Maybe she will decide not to or maybe she will not get married for some reason. Maybe her and/or her husband will not be able to.

I told her that not everyone has kids when they grow up. She said "What!? They get to choose?" I told her yes, people get to choose. Then she said, "Oh, I thought Jesus got to choose."

I love hearing about what grandiose dreams kids come up with...because most of the kids in my life usually put something about Chuck E. Cheese in there. Too funny.

Clever of her to consider multiple pools, because, you know, when you're filthy rich enough to have a palatial home with a pool, one could get very bored with just one after a while, lol.

aw, sooo cute! i love hearing what comes out of kids mounths!

hi cyndi, heres what my publishers said about Easy Kids Knits:
"We do not have the capability for pre-ordering at the moment. But, we are going to start putting books that are not yet published on the site. If customers click on the book they will be given the publish date and given the option to email me. I will store their email and email them as soon as the book is available. I’m afraid that is the limit of our technology at the moment. When we redevelop the site completely we will have the option of preordering but that is a few months away. I will double check with the sales manager and see if we can do anything."
the website is hope that helps a little! claire x

What a way to put things into perspective, huh?

I just found your blog and it is nice to meet you.

At the moment, my younger son wants to be a clown when he grows up and my older either an astronaut or a superhero. LOL

It's funny how kids can see things so clearly sometimes!
