Olivia's Cloud

Brinley: "Mom, guess what? I just saw Olivia's cloud."
Me: "Really? Was she on it?"
Brinley: "Yes, she said to me, 'I love you, Brinley.'
Me: "Oh, yeah?"
Brinley: "Yeah, she said that she can't wait to see me, but I have to get lots older."
Me: "Do you think she is telling Sarah Mae all about earth?"
Brinley: "Yeah. Do you know what she told me?"
Me: "What did she say?"
Brinley: "She said that it's important to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus. She knows everything about it."
Me: "Your right, she is really smart. She knows a lot more than we know, huh?"
Brinley: "She knows about heaven. I know about making juice. You know about...what do you know mommy?"
Me: " I know about being a mommy."
Brinley: "Yeah, you know about being a mommy and Daddy knows all about CricKet and cell phones."
