Future plans

Sophie was sitting in my lap while we were camping, when she started this conversation:

Sophie: Mama, when I grow up I am going to marry Thomas.

Mom: Thomas the Train or Thomas M (a three-year-old at our church)?

Sophie: Thomas M... because I love him.

Later, I tried to get her to repeat this declaration to Dad...

Mom: Sophie, who did you tell me you were going to marry?

Sophie: Thomas.

Mom: And why?

Sophie: Because he is not in our family!

Mom: Well, I'm glad we've gotten the point across that you can't marry people in your own family!

Will: Is that a family rule or a police rule?

Mom: Both!

Later...

Mom: Sophie, what are you going to do when you grow up?

Sophie: Cook ('Took')!

Mom: What else?

Sophie: Feed babies. I'm going to 'took' and feed babies!

We're raising a real womens' libber!

I love that Sophie is so maternal!! It means you need a little baby! :) I also love Will's question. Kingston is also concerned about police rules!!
