When I get bigger can I go around the block?
Or maybe even put on my own socks?
"Yes"her mother say's.

When I get bigger can I go to school?
Or dress up in your outfits and look real cool?
"Yes"her mother say's.

When I get bigger can I play on the slide?
Or maybe go out to the beach and watch the tide?
"Yes"her mother say's.

When I get bigger can I kiss the boys?
And forget about playing with all the toys?
"Yes"her mother say's.

When I get bigger can I have children and marry?
Or buy a dog that's really hairy?
"Yes"her mother say's.

When I get bigger can I be a grandma?
And tell the children to call me Na Na?
"Yes"her mother say's.

When I get bigger can I die and go to heaven?
Maybe like when I'm seventy seven?

Her mother say's "I know that day will come."
"But I hope that I'll be up there and will have so much fun."
So. "Yes"her mother says.

This is cute...it like it's simplicity. To be a child again and see things in the light of their eyes, it would be wonderful....

Oh, how this one rings so true. My three and four year olds are already asking such questions. Although very light, I like how the mother doesn't try to hide and protect even from the tough questions of boys and death. Thanks for the smile

Digging around the archives for lost treasures and came across this simply wonderful piece about a mother and her daughter!!  I loved this...the simplicity and everything!!
