It's going to be an interesting ride watching my oldest son grow up! ;)
I'd like to recount a long conversation from today, if for no other reason that because I want to remember it.
Alexander: I want a sister.
Me: Well, maybe someday we'll have another baby, but what if it's a boy?
A: Then we can have another one and it will be a girl.
Me: Well, I don't know if we want to have that many kids.
A: Well, I do want to have that many kids.
Me: When you are a grownup, you can decide how many kids you want to have.
A: I want to have 43.
Me: 43 kids?! That is a LOT!
A: Yes, I will need a really big belly to grow all those babies in.
Me: Oh, honey, you won't grow the babies in your belly. Mommies do that. You will be the Daddy of the babies.
A: Well, I want to be the Mommy.
Me: Well, only girls have the part in their bellies where the babies grow. But you will be a very good Daddy!
A: Well, then you should give me the part of your belly where the babies can grow.
Me: Hmmm... that won't really work.
A: Yes, I will go to the Belly Knife Store and get a belly knife and then I will cut out the part of your belly where the babies grow and I will put it in me so that I can grow 27 babies.
Me: Oh, it's 27 babies now, huh?
A: Yes. I want 27 babies.
Oh, and by the way, in addition to being a Mommy, Alexander is also claiming that *he* will be the next president of the United States.
