I knew this day would come….

…The day when Zuri would finally ask if we are keeping baby Remi forever. But I didn’t think it would go down like this:

I finally get Remi down for her nap and go in the living room where Zu is watching Flubber (remember Flubber? ha ha). I turn down the TV and remind Zuri to stay quiet-ish while her sister sleeps….This is what comes out next:

Zuri: Mom, you know, its time for Remi to go away.

Me: Go away? where? Why?

Zuri: She needs to go to Nica wa wa (Nicaragua) where thems people have nothing.

Me: (trying to hide my laughter) What?! Why in Nicaragua?

Zuri: Thems have NO good food. NO water…NO baby REMI’S! ….My dad told me. They need her.

Me: Zuri, we cant send her there. She’s in our family for forever and ever.

Zuri: For forrrrreverrrrr? awwwwwwwwww. (complete jibberish……then…) but I can’t NEVER hear my shows! YOU ALWAYS have to be feeding HERS in the BACKROOM! ITs time mom! ITS TIME!

Me: awe….well shes just a baby and when she grows bigger, she’ll be your best friend. I swear! Our baby is sooo sweet and were never giving her away, ok?


Me: (in shock…I have no clue how to respond, because I was clearly not expecting her to take this angle.)

Zuri: cont….He’ll do it! I just have to say a prayer to Jesus Christ!

Me: No….dont ask him….I’ll be soooo sad. I need my ZuZu lady AND my baby Remi OK?

Zuri: oooookay, well……can you turn up the TV?

And that, folks, is where it ended. She hasn’t brought it up since.

But they really do love each other, promise.

just burst out laughing reading this in class during an emotional pause/silence by my professor. hilarious.
best part is 1. imagining her screaming jesus christ. 2. the fact that she was watching flubber.
