Today while riding in the car:
Kate, "Mama, I reeeeeeeeaaaaaallllllly wanna be a grown-up."
Me, "Right now? Today?"
Me, "But then you'd move out of our house, get your own house, get a job, pay the mortgage, pay all kinds of bills--are you ready for all of that?"
Kate, "Yeah. And I'll get to choose my own dog and take him home with me."
