day 11: dreams. (rocky mount, nc “everything my kids do is cute” photographer)

(for today’s photo challenge at Willette’s blog).

The girl has dreams.  Many, many dreams.  She’s so serious about her dreams that she almost frets over them.

Looking out the window on the drive home, “Mom, when I’m older do I get to drive?”

“Yes, Baby.  When you’re older.” (like WAY older since I have issues with the thought of letting my kids drive – it’s a long story.)

“Well, how will I know how to drive?  I mean, how do you know how to do it?  Is someone going to teach me?”

She started to sound a bit frantic at this point.

“Don’t worry, Ev.  One of us will teach  you.”  Me, thinking harder about that, “Probably daddy.  Daddy will teach you.”

“Oh okay.”

Silence.

“Mom?  Can we go to the car dealer tomorrow so I can start thinking about what kind of car I’m going to drive?”

She’s totally my kid.

Which is why we are tickled but never surprised when Evyn shows us her drawings of her future.  This one – her house.  Which looks very similar to ours.

I’ll let you take a look and try to guess before I give you the answers to everything.

Per Evyn: First floor is a couch, lamp (with a coil cord you can barely make out in pink), TV.  That’s an attached garage to the right.

Second floor is her bed and – get this – a TV.  This is where Ev is asserting the fact that she gets to make choices when she’s older.  Because those girls definitely do not have TV’s in their rooms.

Third floor – kitchen.  I guess Ev will take after me because there’s nothing fancy going on here.  A stove and a table.  I mean, who needs to wash dishes?

Fourth floor.  The bathroom.  Toilet, shower sink.  Oh, and that top space – she told me she left plenty of room for an attic.

This bed of hers – well, it pretty much looks like the one she has now, complete with a heart pillow with wings.  Except, as she pointed out, this one will a pink version of the one we gave up when Cam was born – her spool bed that I have to admit even I miss.
