Then the philosopher, she talks to me about what is reality, "would if we are all just dreaming and this isn't really happening?" then questions like,"did people live here before us, like did they exist before we were here ... on earth?" I told her yes of course there is a lot of history and started naming people who have come and gone. She brought up Mary (Jesus' mom) and many others who have come and gone, then she was satisfied... onto to thinking of more things.
I don't know what to think of her, she goes from 6 to 16 in a flash... She really wanted a hair dying kit for Christmas (pink, purple, green etc). I thought these little clips would be a little more uhhh... fun and less permanent. She also wants to get bangs cut like her aunt Alex, the bangs that cover one eye!! I said no way, so now she is trying to manipulate her hair into "bangs" that cover just a part of one eye!!
Her latest idea... "wouldn't it be great if I was magic, then I could just say poof and my room would be clean" etc. Yesterday it was: "if I was magic, I would make myself an adult.." I talked her out of that one as quick as I could. She settled for staying 11 or 12 for the rest of her life! How is she already so grown up and why does she want to grow faster??
If I was magic, I would keep her 6 forever!! I love her to pieces!!
