Bug: Who’s going to die first, you or me?
Mommy: Probably me, but not for a long time. I plan to live until I’m really, really old.
Bug: How old?
Mommy: Until after you have kids, and your kids have kids, and you’re a grandpa and I’m a great grandma. Then maybe I’ll live a little longer just for kicks.
Bug: My kids will be your grandkids?
Mommy: Yes, if you decide to have kids. Maybe you will, maybe you won’t. Do you think you’d like to be a daddy someday?
Bug: If I’m not a daddy, will you have grandkids at all?
Mommy: Nope. You’re my only child. You’re my one shot.
Bug: So, I get to decide if you become a grandma?
Mommy: Looks that way. It’s all up to you.
Bug: So that means I have all the power.

I love this. The moment when they realize that mommy or daddy are no longer almighty. What kids don’t know is that they ALWAYS have the power. We love to make their lives wonderful- if we can.
