My friend Maggie picked up Suzy for a playdate the other day with her son. Grady and Suzy are in kindergarten together and Grady is the only boy that Suzy has even noticed in her class. She is so very different from the twins who each had declared a future husband by this time of kindergarten. But, I digress.... Grady is Suzy's friend and had invited her over to play, so Maggie picked them up from school and was headed back to her house and overheard this conversation in the back.
Grady: yea, Suzy.
Suzy: I wish I was my mom and my mom was me.
Suzy: Cause my mom does everything better.
There will come a day when she doesn't feel this way any more, but goodness, I'm really enjoying age 5.
