Night time talks
Josephine and I like to lie in bed and talk in the evening. We talk about our favorite part of the day, and our not so favorite part of the day. We talk about family, about God, about friends, and about how beautiful our little life is.
Tonight I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up.
She told me she wants to be a daddy.
My first instinct was to explain to her that boys are daddies, girls can be mommies.
Instead, I asked her why she wants to be a daddy.
"Because daddies take really good care of babies and little kids."
I had to smile.
Just one more reminder of how truly blessed I am to have such an amazing husband, who has been a true hands-on daddy since the day our Josephine was born. There is no bigger compliment to a daddy, I think. She wants to be just like him.
As our discussion continued, I found out that she wants 2 kids, both girls. She is going to feed them cookies all the time.
I told her that a good mommy would not feed her babies cookies all the time, and that her babies will need to eat a variety of nutritious foods to stay healthy.
"I know mommies cannot feed their babies cookies all the time", she said. "That's why I want to be a daddy!"
