Zoe: I wish I could be a grownup soon.
Me: Why is that?
Zoe: Then I could adopt a baby while we're in China and take her home.
Zoe: Yes, and I could name her Emily or whatever I like. If she's a girl. I want a girl but if they don't have any girls I could have a boy.
Zoe: And when we get home I have to have diapers and make bottles. . . and I'll call you to help me put up the crib!
Me: I hope so -- I'll be the baby's grandmother so I'll want to help.
Zoe: I don't know if you'll be alive, but I hope you are!
