conversation with e
often, E likes to play "work". she pretends to pack up her purse, her "brella", keys, and phone- then takes her leave for a long day in the rat race. there are hugs and kisses good-bye, i love you's, and "see you soon"s. she returns at 4 or 8, with a triumphant "i'm home!", more hugs and kisses, and an affirmation of "it's good to see you" thrown in for good measure.
today, she had her umbrella out and open, was carrying a ball, and had put her D*ra watch on. so i knew. she had a plan and was headed somewhere important. naturally, i assumed it would be work. apparently, she has the day off. and much bigger plans.
Mom: "where are you going, e?"
E: "i'm going home"
Mom: "oh you are? where is home?"
E: "far away"
Mom: "it is? where is it?"
Mom: "so you're going home to China?"
E: "mmm-hmmm. you can come. and jie jie, and all the kids".
