Conversations With Luke,  Elementary School

Empty Nest: A Conversation with Luke

I think this conversation may have been prompted by us telling Luke that we were going to see Steve’s Dad (it’s his father who passed away), even though he started asking these questions many hours later. Luke has meet him a few times, but the most recent time was a couple of years ago and I’m sure he doesn’t remember.

  • Luke: Why when I’m a grown-up do I not live with you?
  • DH: Well, after you go to college and get a job, you’ll have your own stuff and you’ll want to put it in your own house.
  • Luke: But I will miss you!
  • Me: You will still see us. Remember that Nana and Papa are my mommy and daddy. I used to live with them, but now I live with you and Daddy. But we still see them a lot. They come to see us or we go to see them.
  • Luke: But I don’t have a car.
  • DH: You will when you get old enough.
