The Ride Home

This was the conversation that took place on the ride home from dance and piano tonight:

Chandler: So, Mama, did you have to pay for us to take us home?
Me: I have no idea what you're talking about.
Chan: At the hospital. Did you have to pay for us when we were born?
Me: Well, yeah, there were bills from when you were born. Why?
Chan: Just wondering for when I get pregnant...so I can be prepared. But I'm thinking I don't want to pay for kids, so I'll just adopt.
Casey: Yeah, I'm thinking of adopting too. Kieran and I definitely want to have kids, but I don't think I want to be pregnant. It sounds really hurtful. Adopting sounds better.
Chan: Yeah, I'm gonna adopt 5 kids...Hope, Faith, Angel, Mercy and I haven't thought of the 5th name yet.
Casey: I think those kids already come with names. You don't get to name kids when you adopt them.
Chan: And I don't know about living with a boy. You know they only think about 3 things.
Me: What would that be?
Chan: Football. Baseball. And having a skateboard.
Me: Oh.
Casey: And I am really scared about driving. Being on the road with all those other cars. I'm going to talk to Kieran about living somewhere where we can just walk or drive a golf cart. 

And then I pulled into the garage.  The end.

At least you have time to prepare and you already know four of your grandkid's names, not to mention one son-in-law.

It's so funny how much thought they put into this. Ethan has decided he's not getting married until he has a million dollars, and at 30 he's still planning to be living with us.
