As I’ve mentioned, we spent March break at the cottage up north. The boys had a blast – they love playing with all of their cousins, especially their 18 month old cousin – William. When it came time to leave the cottage, this conversation took place:
Xander said, “Mum, can we bring William home with us?”
No hun, we can’t.
Ethan says, “Awww :(“
Xander leans down and whispers something in his ear.
I say, “What was that?”
Ethan says, “Xander said don’t worry – that you are going to grow us another one!” (meaning a baby)
To which I reply, “Um – I don’t think so honey.”
Ethan, “Why Mum, cause you growed us already?”
Yeah – that sounds about right to me!
The truth is that I would love another baby. But me being home with the kids means that we are down one income, and kids – well they are expensive:)
So for now I am thrilled with the 2 I have! I really do adore these boys!
But if we hit the lottery one day soon – I’ll have a gaggle!
