Conversations with Campbell, Part 284


Yesterday in the car, Campbell and I had another one of our fun conversations.

C: Mama, when were you a baby?

H: About 40 years ago.

C: 40 years??? That’s a long time ago.

H: Yes, yes it is. Do you know who my mommy is?

C: No. Who?

H: Gran is my mommy.

C: Gran is your MOMMY?

H: Yes she is. And do you know who my daddy is?

C: Who?

H: Grandpa is.

C: Grandpa is your DADDY? When you growed up did you live in another world?

H: Well, no. But I did live in my own house. And when you grow up, you’ll live in your own house, too.

C: I will miss you if I do that. I think I’ll go live with Gran and Grandpa.

H: Ok. You can do that. I’m sure they’d love to have you live with them.


When I told B about the conversation, he asked who Campbell thought Gran and Granpa were – just random people who showed up once in a while to give him presents?

Given the way his four-year-old little brain works, that’s probably exactly what he thought.

I love it when their little brains click in like that. And I want random people with presents, too.

My kids had the hardest time with the concept that their aunts and uncles were our brothers and sisters. Plus looking at old pictures - every picture of my husband was identified by my youngest as "me!"

Aww bless. I once tried to run away to go live with my Nana but my mother wouldn't drive me so I didn't make it past the front gate.
