What she dreams of, what she says
Last night, while I lay next to the Bean-girl in her bed:
Bean: Mommy, what are you thinking?
Me: That I'm tired and want to go to sleep.
Bean: What do you dream of?
Me: Uhhhh... (too tired to think at this moment). I don't know. I often don't remember my dreams. Maybe I sometimes dream about my little daughters? What do you dream of?
Bean: I dream about drinking milk.
This afternoon, while up in her bedroom:
Bean: Where's my favorite fish toy?
Me : It's on the kitchen counter. I'll go get it.
Bean: I'm coming too!
Me: I'm coming right back with it, Bean-girl. You don't have to come, I'll be right back.
Bean: I want to come.
Me : (exasperated) Why do you always have to go where I'm going? Why do you always have
Bean: Because I want to follow you and go wherever you are going THAT'S ALL and I want to be in your arms so I can be with you wherever you are going THAT'S ALL and so I can be in your arms THAT'S ALL!
