Since Brodie left for London, I've been reminding Margot each day that soon we'll see him again. And every time our conversation goes exactly like this:
Me: "In __ days, we'll go to London and we'll all be together again."
Min: "At the airport?"
Me: "Well, Dad's not at the airport anymore, but we'll go through an airport to get to him."
Min: "We'll fly on a plane?"
Me: "Yes, we'll fly on a plane."
Min: "With my carseat?"
Me: "Yes, we'll take your carseat."
Min: "With Bobby? And Puffy? And Bun?" (Note: 'Puffy' refers to a pink dog she named "Puffy Dog" and 'Bun' is a brown dog. These guys rank well in the hierarchy of stuffed animals that live in her crib.)
Me: "Yes, with Bobby and Puffy and Bun."
Here, Margot always pauses.
Min: "And will we eat breakfast on the airplane?"
I assure her that we will. Although, to be honest, with our coach fare seats, I am not sure that the airline (US Air) will provide us with a breakfast. I'll have to be sure to bring something breakfast-like on the flight in case they don't.
I'm not sure why eating breakfast is so important to Margot for this trip, but I can only suspect it was discussed at some point in a Caillou episode.
