Conversations with my children


Olivia (1-year-old): Mama! Mama!

Me: Hi, Olivia. I'm back.

Olivia: I wan milk!

Me: Olivia, do you want milk?

Olivia: Yea, yea, yea (while bouncing up and down and smiling)



Me: Alessia, throw out Olivia's diaper for me.

Alessia (2.5-year-old): (determined silence)

Me: Alessia, are you going to throw out Olivia's diaper? Are you going to be my big helper today?

Alessia: (determined, deliberate silence)

Me: Alright, I'm going to do it.

Alessia: I'M GOING TO DO IT. (Runs to snatch diaper from my hand.)

  1. Keep writing, Kathleen....these are the thing you'll love reading (more than once) years from now. I wrote down many such wonderful conversations, and wish I'd captured them all.
