when i have a little girl
i shall build her a dollhouse
not a plastic pink barbie shack
but a real, wooden, quality house
with stairs
because it never made sense to me
how dollhouses could have so many floors with no way to get up and down them.

and when i have a little boy
i'll build him a train track
with interconnecting railroads
and streets going through it all
so that he can play to his heart's content
with trains and cars
(and so can i)

and i'll go fishing with them
(and make their daddy bait the hook)
and my little girl will climb trees
and my little boy will learn to nurture baby dolls
and we'll camp in the living room
and have picnics in the playroom

there will be dancing and singing
swimming and sports
taking them to ball games
and concerts
and church

that's what i'll do with my children...
what about you?

Aww, so sweet! When I have kids, we are going to eat ice cream for dinner at least once every summer. We are going to go to the zoo and parks and explore the outdoors as much as possible. We'll play board games and card games and have family movie nights with air popped popcorn. We will travel and love and have a blast...someday. I hope :)
