07 NovTales from the Parent Hood

M1 woke up just a little bit ago. Transpirations:

M1: Mommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! MOMMMMMMMMMMM! < sounding alarmed and using the I might throw up tone of voice >
Me: < going in to find out what's going on & how soon a puke bowl will be required > What’s up sweetie?
M1: < totally not quite awake > Mmmm. Mom?
Me: Yes?
M1: Mmmm. Um. I – I… I want to be you for Halloween.
Me: You what?
M1: < starting to get kind of upset like she might cry > I want to be you for Halloween!
Me: Ok. That’s fine.
M1: < calming down a little > Ok.
Me: Ok, now, you go back to sleep, sweetie, I love you.
M1: I love you too, Mommy.

Odds that she’ll remember this conversation in the morning? Not. Very. Good.
