Schatz's preschool has a swimming pool that is just a few feet deep. Tuesdays are swimming day which led do this conversation at pick up today...
Schatz: Can you find my goggles? I want to bring my goggles tomorrow.
Me: Yes, I'll write your name on your goggles tonight.
Schatz: That's not going to work.
Me: Yes, it will. If you lose your goggles tomorrow someone will find them and give them back.
Schatz (in a cautious tone): What if we get a new Kaitlyn tomorrow? Not a "C" Caitlyn...a"K" Kaitlyn?
Me: I'll write your last name, too.
Schatz: What if we get a "K" Kaitlyn who is also called Kaitlyn D----?
Me: I think we can risk it.
Schatz (mischievously): What if you bring home the new Kaitlyn D--- instead of me? By accident!
Me: I'll bring her back to school and wait for you. I promise.
Schatz: I would cry and cry, Mommy. You better not forget what I look like.
Me: I promise!
Schatz (laughing): What if she has the same clothes as me?
