I was doing some things on the computer when Bria came to me all sad and sentimental and said:
Bria: in a sad almost going to cry tone,"Mom, I miss the old times we used to have!"
Me: "You do, huh?"
Bria: "Yeah, maybe we can do some of the things we did in the old times because I miss that. We used to camp a lot more ya know? And lots of other things."
We had just gone camping in the Smokies in September...guess that was still too far in the past for her! :)
Me: "You're right we should do more of what we used to."
It's kind of funny to hear a 5 year old talking about the "old times". I have to admit that I am kind of confused as to where this is coming from, but it's nice to see her thinking about time and time together.
Another thing to add:
Today while at Conference for our church, Alyssa wrote a note to a boy we were watching while his parents were singing in the choir. Here is what they exchanged...
Alyssa: "Will you marry me?"
Friend: "I will marry NOBODY!"
That cracked us up. Don't worry Alyssa's ego wasn't bruised...there's still time! :)
