This was the conversation that followed...
G: Mama, Esther likes lollipops and I do too!
Me: Do you think you and Esther will eat lollipops together when she comes home?
G: Esther in Haiti Mama.
Me: I know, but she is going to come live with us at our house one day.
G: Where is Esther's Mommy?
Me: Right here, I am Esther's Mommy.
G: *giggling* No, Mama. That's my Mommy. (pointing to me)
Me: You're right, I am your Mommy and I am Esther's Mommy. I love both of you!
G: You Gavin's Mommy. (and he runs off to play)
I guess he had enough of that silly conversation. He acted like I was trying to joke around by saying that I was actually "Mommy" to someone other than him. Although he looked a bit worried when I repeated it for a second time. I think we're going to have a bit of adjusting to do in the near future:) What a hard concept to explain to a 2 year old! I would love to get inside that little mind to see what his thoughts are. I'd love to know how much he really understands. He probably thinks we're crazy! Maybe he's right:)
