Wai'i

Asia has been asking me a lot of random questions lately. Last week I was in the laundry room sorting laundry and she was standing in the doorway twittering around and humming to herself. All of a sudden she says, almost in a rhetorical kind of way,

"I wonda who use a live here".

"What do you mean, Asia?"

"Who did?"

"I don't know who did, but you know what? Mommy thinks about that pretty often, too."


She giggles "I see'd dem outside tomorrow"

"You saw 'who', honey?"

"Dem. In da car on da street outside. Da blue car."

"Huh? You saw the people who used to live here?"

"uh-huh, getting into dey car."

"oh...Did they talk to you?"

"Nope, I just see'd dem"

"Oh, ok."

Then a few days ago she was sitting in the office chair we have in the corner of the dining room and she says "I wanna go to da ocean". And then just a few minutes ago she says;

"Mom...member at da chuch in Wai'i?"

"Yeah, the church in Hawai'i?"

"When I went to nurshey dere and dey had da bubbles"

"Yeah, with Sister Bryce. They had a bubble machine, huh?"

"Yip!........Mom?"

"Yeah"

"When we going go back to Wai'i"

(smiling) "Maybe we'll visit there sometime soon"

"Ok, can we go to the park now?"

Ever since she started preschool she has been telling stories and sharing her memory a lot more often. I don't know if it's things that are triggering her memory or her subconscious visits her in her dreams and when she wakes up she remembers them more vividly, but she has been cracking me up lately with her little "conversations".
