Monday in my office:
Casen: (As he is playing with my molecular models) Mama, I wish you were a scientist.
Me: (heart sinking a bit) I am a scientist. I just teach science, too.
Casen: You don't build any volcanoes though.
Me: Well, I guess I need to do that then.
Casen: Yeah. Well, that's pretty cool you are a scientist.
(warms my heart)
And I'm pretty sure C and I need to build a volcano and make it erupt - sometime before Miss Button gets here.
Later on Monday while we were walking the trail at school:
Casen: Am I going to have a wife one day?
Me: If you decide to get married, you will.
Casen: Yeah, I want to get married. Where do I find a wife?
Me: (trying not to laugh) I don't know where you'll find her.
Casen: But who is she?
Me: We don't know yet. But you have time to figure that out.
Casen: Will I have kids?
Me: If you want some one day.
Casen: Yeah, I want some kids. Who will they be?
Me: We don't know yet - they haven't been born yet.
And before he could ask me how babies are made, he got distracted by a dog.
