Love on the Shopping List

conversations with hank

 

Hank: Mama, do you still write your blog?

Me: (busying about, getting ready for our walk to school, in need of a second coffee) Yes. I post a new conversation every day Monday-Friday.

Hank: Good! Then you have to put this on the blog. Look what Amália did to your shopping list!

Me: (looking up) Oh, wonderful. She made it better.

Hank: And you put love on the list. You always do that. It’s kind silly because you can’t buy love, but I like it. When I am an adult and have a person I love I am going to put love on the shopping list.

Me: Never forget to add love to your life wherever you can.

Hank: Can you use this for your blog art today and lets have a conversation right now. A funny conversation. The funny ones are the best.

Me: Think so? All right. Consider it done.

Hank: I just love this drawing. I love that my sister is drawing. I love my sister.

Me: (beaming)

Molly: (from another room) Olha, Mano!!! Olha! (Look, Brother! Look!!)

Hank: Coming, Mana (sister)!
