So, I was checking in on Cameron tonight. He had plenty of questions and comments that just got me going.
Me: I feel like I’m the luckiest mommy alive to have such wonderful, special boys like you and Kiefer. You make me laugh. You make me smile. You fill my bucket. You are so smart.
Cameron: But what if you’re dead?
(moment of laughter from me)
Me: Why would I be…? Even when I’m dead, I’m always going to love you! But, I’m not going anywhere for a very long time. In fact, I’m sure I’ll be alive to see my grandchildren. You’ll find someone and maybe have children.
Cameron: But, if you are dead, how can I see you?
Me: I won’t be dead. Maybe you’ll find someone when you are in your 20’s. That puts me around 55. I’m still young then.
Cameron: But, what if you are 100?
Me: When I’m 100, you’ll be about 65. You’ll probably have grandchildren of your own by then, and I’ll have great grandchildren.
Cameron: But, I don’t want a baby in my belly!
(Again, more laughter)
Me: Cameron, the girl in your life will be the one with a baby in her belly.
Cameron: OHHH! That’s OK then!
