For a smile
It is this...Lorelei has played in the bathtub every night she has been here. Has enjoyed it more than usual. Last night I went in there to check on her and she was pretending something with her toys, but for the life of me I cannot remember what. I guess because of what she said to me just knocked it right out of my mind.
She looked up at me and said, "Mamaw, if you die before I have my babies, don't worry. I will tell them all about their great grandma!"
And she and I both just laughed...I think she is thinking she would lay and tell her babies stories the way she makes me tell her stories every night. She wants them about her mom, her aunt, herself, Papaw or me.
This is not the first time me dying has come up, though it is the first time she has ever mentioned it and not been sort of tearful. She used to really worry about it. I don't know why. Also, she has mentioned it before in relation to me getting to see her babies.
I know beyond a doubt, I did not think of how many children I wanted at her age...oh, she has decided on two children, too. She has always wanted babies, but this visit is the first time I think I have heard an exact number.
