Predictions for the Future

On the way home from gymnastics today Eliana suddenly said, "I can't wait until I'm 7!" After a brief pause, she said, "And I really can't wait until I'm 19!!" Curious, I asked her where she thought she'd be living when she's 19. Without hesitations she answered, "Alaska." I asked what she would be doing in Alaska and she said...

"Well, I don't really remember what Alaska is like. But I'll be there with my children. And I'll be building a house with my husband. But I'll have 2 children, a brother and a sister. And I'll have 2, so that if one of my children dies I'll be sad, but I'll still have another one."

Part of me thinks she's adorable.

Part of me is terrified at the idea of my someday 19 year old daughter having 2 children and moving to Alaska.
