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?
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.
