As I was getting Gideon dressed the other morning, Judith asked me if she could watch Dora. I am not a huge fan of The Dora, so I often try and suggest something else. This was our conversation...
J: Mommy, I need to watch Dora!
K: Wouldn't you rather conquer the world instead?
J: Can I bring my juice box?
Ah, the mind of a child.
Then she proceeded to get dressed, got her boots on and was raring to go. Whoops. She settled for colouring at least. It's best to make detailed plans before embarking on such an expedition anyway, right? I felt bad, but honestly I just wasn't up for world domination.
The next day I guess Judith was getting cabin fever (from me being sick), so she came up to me while I was on the computer and said:
J: Mommy, get some regular pants on! (I was wearing my pj bottoms).
J: So we can go to the van!
J: So we can go on an ADVENTURE!!!!
J: To....... an ADVENTURE!
She was so sweet and eager, so I told her that after Daddy came home and we had supper we'd go on an adventure (she must have still been set on conquering the world). So we conquered the grocery store. Baby steps...
It will be interesting to see where she ends up in life.
