Overheard

We're going to call this section "Overheard" because I am not, in fact, a part of the vast majority of the conversations that will be described here.  In this first Overheard post however, I am, to my great amusement, involved.

(sitting at the dinner table)
Fi:  I wish to be a chef when I grow up. (yes, she does talk that way, the little nerd)

Rose: I want to be a mommy when I grow up.

Me:  Well, those are great choices! But remember you can choose to be a mommy AND have a career etc. (feminist propaganda about being superwoman follows here)

Rose:  Well, I want to be a mommy.  A mommy in a box.

Me & Fi: (perplexed looks on our faces)
Her Morbid Sweetness

Rose: Why can't I be a mommy in a box?

Me:  Well honey, you can be whatever you want to be, but...What kind of mommy is in a box?

Rose:  A dead mommy! (smiles with delight)

Okay, at this point I have sorted out that she wants to be a mummy.  But, what kind of kid wants to be dead in a box as her chosen profession?  Of course, Rosie's cheerful morbidity astounds us all...quite regularly.

  1. @Dark Mother- I keep saying that Rose is the kid I wanted to be.

    @Debra- IDK, she's always oddly cheerful about these things...LOL
