Ella: Mommy, in just a few more days, I'm going to be four, then I'll be five and get on the school bus.
Me: I know, you're growing so fast!
Ella: And then, after that, I'll be six-seven-eight!
Me: Stop it! Stop growing so fast! I want you to stay exactly like you are right at this minute. I don't want you to get big so fast.
Ella: But I want to, Mommy, I want to get really big!
Me: Why? Why do you want to be so big?
Ella: Because, Mommy, I want to be big. I want to be a mommy and be just like you.
