Grace O’Malley: Mamo you will be sad when you here this I’m going to say.
Mamo: what is it you’re going to say?
Grace O’Malley: I’m moving to China.
Mamo (a little surprised that she would consider moving. She is, after all, only 5): why would you do that?
Grace O’Malley: because Nana said someone else lived there.
Mamo: who is it that lives there?
Grace O’Malley: I don’t know.
Mamo: when are you going?
Grace O’Malley: I’m not sure. But you’ll be sad.
Mamo: yes I will. Very sad.
Grace O’Malley: guess where else I’m going?
Grace O’Malley: Disney World.
I hope she travels the world. Experiences wonderful cultures with wonderful people. I hope her travels give the world great impressions of Americans. I hope the world treats her kindly. I wish to live long enough and well enough to share some of her adventures.
I just don’t think I’m ready for her to go to China yet.
Maybe Disney World.
