A Baby Brother
No, we don’t have one yet but Sandy and her Papa are already planning on having one. The Husband tells her what they need to do when the baby comes. Most of the time I just smile and laugh at their discussions but seriously, I don’t think I can handle a new baby just now. Which is why this post is only about Sandy wanting a baby.
Sandy: Mommy, I want a baby brother. I will take care of him and put him to sleep and give him a bath.
Me: Hmmm, if you have a baby brother, Mommy won’t be able to carry you.
Sandy: I will carry him. Or how about a baby sister?
Me: It’s the same. I can’t carry you because I will have to carry the baby all the time. (you should’ve guessed by now that I’m letting her know the worst case scenario)
Sandy: (paused) …..
Sandy: But it’s going to be so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (waving her hands up and down)
Me: If you have a baby brother, he needs to sleep beside me on the bed. He will dede from mommy all the time.
Sandy: It’s okay. I will lie down on the floor with Papa and we will do lots of things. We will play with the flashlight, make a tent and tell stories. And then when you’re sleeping, you will say "hey, we’re trying to sleep here" and then we’ll say "we’re having so much fun!!"
Me: Awwww. But I don’t want a baby. Not yet.
Sandy: It’s okay. Papa wants one. He wants a baby boy. A blue one. I want a pink baby.
And so on and so on… These are her reasons. As for mine, that will be another blog post. Seeing her excited like this almost makes me want to give her one immediately.
