Our Daily Conversations

I do not remember my boys bugging me to have conversations with them everyday when they were 5 years old, or ever for that matter.

But the Dolly would ask me multiple times a day to have conversations with her. Whether we are in the car, walking somewhere, over a meal and even during a shower when I am shampooing her hair! Haha....

Sometimes our conversations will begin with a question of hers.

Questions such as "Can a woman marry another woman?" or "What are the different ways that people can get money?" or "How do we change a star into a hexagon?" etc...

Sometimes, she just wants me to talk to her about anything I like.

Even though I am smiling at this instant as I am typing, thinking how sweet my baby girl is to want to spend so much time conversing with me, I must admit there are many times in a week when I feel more annoyed and impatient than I should be with her requests. This is especially so when she makes repeated requests at the most inconvenient times.

But I have to keep reminding myself that the days are long, but the years are short. There will come a time when I will not be the person she wants to spend so much time talking to anymore.

So I must cherish while it lasts.
