Baby talk

That was the subject of an email I got from Amanda when I checked this morning.

She and Anna Marie had spent the day together yesterday (and spent the night together last night) so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

When Anna Marie asks why we don't have another baby, we've been using the "our house is too small" excuse for about a year now. We rent, so our house is also the excuse when it comes to why we don't get a dog.

She wishes for a bigger house so she can get a new baby and a puppy when we give her money to throw into a fountain.

Anyway, back to the email.

I was talking to AM about the possibility of a sibling today. She seemed into the idea, saying that it would mean that you'd have to get a bigger house. I explained that it wasn't necessarily so, that you could probably make due for awhile with the house you've got. At this point, she decided she'd rather just have the bigger house, so she could have three play rooms. One on each level.

So much for that idea! Of having a baby!

Please note - she's also been asking for a playroom lately, and I've reminded her that the WHOLE HOUSE is her playroom - she's got toys in her room, my room, the bathroom, Jason's office, the living/dining room. You get the picture.

So, I guess she's decided that she wants to skip right over the baby part, and get straight to the bigger house part.

That'll happen right after she gets to the child labor part so she can pay for said house.

You know, the first time my Aunt Debi saw AM, she did ask me why we didn't have her modeling…

My son asked Santa Claus for a baby brother one year.

Wonderful Santa said "Sorry Buddy, I cant help you on that one. They have to be ordered early!"

That's one smart Santa - wonder if they learn that in "Santa School?"

i used to pray for a "little baby brother or sister to come" here. i'm sure my mom would counter that prayer with one of her NOT have the baby come.

What a sweet and fun post! I remember so wishing to have a little brother...then, after being an only child for 10 years (and with parents who were 40 and 43 respectively) I got one. A surprise to them as much as me! *laugh*
Our daughter was adopted from China 2 years ago and asks us to go *anywhere* and adopt a sister for her! Oh yes dear! It is THAT easy! Our 24 year old son is not so sure!! And my husband and I are 50!! Still...we discuss it...: )
Loved that Santa Claus comment from doodlebugmom! So funny!
Love reading your blog!

I don't think I ever prayed for siblings, but I got three of them in the span of 18 months!
