The Future According to Danae

Lately, Danae’s been harping about her future baby brother and actually planning his life already, saying he’s going to do this and that, and telling me what she and Noelle are going to do with him. Also after coming to us with all sorts of unusual names, we finally agreed on naming him David. I keep telling her that he isn’t coming till next year, after Noelle turns 3.

And then another interesting conversation took place last night. It began with Danae saying she will have a Beetle when she becomes a mommy and her husband will drive it. She went on to say that she will have 3 kids — a son, a daughter, then another son. I asked her what she’ll be doing, if she’s gonna work or be like mommy. She said she’ll be like mommy and take care of the kids. I think she said she will have to leave her kids with her husband when she needs to work, so getting confused, I told her I thought she was going to stay home with the kids. She quickly replied that she’ll need to leave her kids when she’s going to preach or teach people about God. I’m sure she meant she will leave her kids for a while to do such things, just like what I do when I have teachings or meetings. But for the preaching part, she said she wants to be just like daddy. 🙂

When we asked her what her husband would be doing, she also said he’ll stay home and take care of the kids. That part’s still blurry, but she seems absolutely sure about her Beetle and that her husband will drive it.

Hahaha. I love conversations like this. We couldn’t leave the parked car just yet because we wanted to finish talking. We told her that her husband should work to provide for their family. King lovingly told her that these things will happen a long time from now, maybe when she’s 25 (but maybe he was secretly hoping never haha), and I told her that for now, she should just enjoy being 5. She said yes and that she’s happy to become 6.

Gotta love kids! They’re so into growing up and doing grown up stuff. It really makes you think how important your role is as a parent in shaping their lives and helping them build great futures.
