This child can always make me feel a full range of emotions by her sweet conversation's.
Earlier today we were out running errands.
She asks me "Mommy will you get me a car for my birthday?"
I reply "A real Car?"
"Yes, a real car. A real yellow car" she responds.
so I say "For which birthday?" and she pipes in
"For my Sweet 16 silly"
lol........seriously. The funny thing is, she is absolutely serious about getting her drivers license. I know it has been achieved by others with Down syndrome, and I don't doubt my little girl at all that she too will achieve this goal....considering her mind is already set on it. [and she is stubborn when she has her mind set on something!]
Then a little while later she says to me......
"In nine more years I will be in college"
I look in the rear view mirror at her grinning face.
"Yes, 9 more years I reply" my heart sinking a little bit at the thought~
and then she asks "Are you going to miss me?"
Whaaaaa......talk about tugging at this Mommas heartstrings.
"Yes, I say....with all my heart and soul I will miss you."
"good" is her matter-of-fact response.
I guess this Momma can't keep her baby from growing up.
