We are running through the list of things the kids want to put in their backpacks to take on our trip.
Nik: “My little transformer book, my bumblebee, ALL my Star Wars Clone Wars people…”
Anjali: “Dwawing paypuh, mahkers, gum. Can I take gum?”
Me: “Sure! What movies do you want to watch on the plane?”
Nik: “Transformers! And Star Wars!”
Anjali: “Cinduhwewwa, Sweeping Beudy…”
Nik: “Cinderella. Yeah, Cinderella. And ALL the Harry Potter movies. And the one with the dragons. And Jackson’s game?”
Me: “Yes, you can take Jackson’s game [a Nintendo ds loaner from a friend]”
It gets quiet in the back of the car, then,
Anjali: “Mommy, can you take a bwanket for me in case I get tiy-uhd? Coz I might get tiy-uhd on the pwane and then I need a bwanket.”
How does she even know these things…the forethought, the planning…an old soul in a little body.
