I don't wanna grow up... I'm a toys'r'us kid
Gwen has been giving a lot of reasons why she doesn't want to grow up lately.
Gwen: "Mom, I don't want to grow up."
Mom: "Why not?"
Gwen:"Because I don't want to get fat."
Mom:"Do you think I'm fat?"
I can't quote this conversation because I was not at home, but Joey told me later the gist of it. Gwen told him that she didn't want to grow up because when she gets older so will Grandma Patty. And she doesn't want Patty to die. Isn't that sad. I am glad that Joey was home and not me because he is such a good teacher. He taught her about the resurrection and it was all resolved by the time I got home.
It is so resolved that today we had this conversation:
Gwen: Mom, when I get to be your age, you will die. But it's okay cause I will get a new mom.
Me: Why do you need a new mom?
Gwen: Because you are gonna die someday.
Me: I guess I just won't ever die then.
Oops. I will let Joey try and explain that one too.
