Definitely My Child


Yesterday I took the girls out on some errands and they each ended up getting one of those beanie baby things. Mina choose a baby Panda Bear. She's had it on her since then, and this morning insisted that she "dressed up like a Panda Bear for school".


We picked her out a black and white outfit and I put her hair up in bunlike ponytails on either side of her head for "ears".


Later, we had this conversation:


Mina: Mama, I want to be a Panda Bear when I grow up. I want our whole family to be Panda Bears.


Me: Um...OK. I guess we'll have to learn to like bamboo.


Mina: Yeah, we can get a bunch of bamboo and make it into bacon.

I'll trade you some bamboo for some bacon. Lots of it growing from the neighbors into my yard. And yep, the stuff grows about a foot a day. If you master the trick about the bacon, I need to know also.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
