The correct answer is D, of course. I actually have a tag that links to all conversations that have taken place in the car. All the best do!
Mgazi: Mommy, can you give me a TB shot for Christmas?
Me: Gaz, do you want to me take you to the Dr’s office to get another vaccination? Honey, you cried like crazy, don’t you remember? You kicked. You screamed. You actually bit me!
Mgazi: I didn’t bite you.
Me: Okay, you didn’t bite me. But I could tell you wanted to.
Mgazi: I want to have the shot so I can give it to you and daddy and Zaffy.
Me: Do you mean you want to administer the Tuberculosis vaccine to the entire family?
Zaffron: No, mom! Geesh! Don’t you get it? She wants to jab the needle in our arms and push the thingy down so that we can stay healthy and not get diseases! [Zaffron throws her hands in the air, exasperated that once again she has to explain something to her dense, and obviously slow, mother.]
Mgazi: Uh huh. I want my family to be healthy. So I’m going to stick you here [she points to her shoulder] and here [she points to her leg] and here [she lifts up her left butt cheek and pokes at it. (Or maybe it was her right, I'm not sure. I was watching all of this through the rearview mirror.)]
Me: Sweetie, that is a very kind thought but it’s not going to happen.
Mgazi: Fine then. If you won’t do it, I’ll just ask Santa!
Awww…so cute! You have a little precious right there with a huuuge heart Merry X-mas!
I am a very lucky woman, Alexandra!
I couldn’t agree more. All the best conversations with kids do take place in the car! Love this post.
Thank you! I think there must be a safety aspect to the car, don’t you? Kids are free to bring up any topic that they choose knowing mommy’s strapped into the driver’s seat and can’t do anything much about it!
