The car conversation I will never forget:
Frank: Mom, when will I get to meet my birth mom? Isaac–I was adopted and one day I want to meet my birth mom…my real mom.
Isaac: Frank. Mom is you REAL mom.
Frank: Well, I know–she is NOW.
Me: Frank darlin’–I am your birth mom. You grew in my tummy. I have shown you all those pictures…
Frank: NO! Mommy, I know that’s what you liiiiiike to tell me but I am from the state.
Me: The state?
Frank: The state of GEORGIA. My birth family loved me, but they couldn’t take care of me so they sent me to the state and then you got me.
Me: Hmmmm…Frank is there anything else that you would like to tell me about your birth family?
Frank: MOM. You know more than I do. I was just a baby. You need to tell me more about them.
Me: Frank–I am your birth mom. I carried you in my belly.
Isaac: Yep. She su-WAH did! And she came all the way over to E-fe-opia to push me out of her belly too. She pushed and pushed–and out I popped and then she gave me a cucumber.
Parker: OH man! Mom–they are all mixed up!
Isaac: Ohhhh dat’s right! I had a nudder mom first!
Laney: Yes Isaac! And Frank–you don’t have another mom. But you do have another dad.
Laney: Frank–you have a Father in heaven…you know that!
Frank: Yes-I know but there aren’t police in heaven.
Isaac: But dare is Cars 2 dare!
Oh my. The conversations you have in your mini van whole running errands when you are a family that has grown through adoption. Love my 5 kids!! They kinda make my day!
