The Baby Store
Last night, as Brant and I were snuggling, before he went to sleep, we were talking about his new baby cousin. I asked Brant if he thought Baylor had a Pah-Pah (what he called Paci). He said no. I then asked him if we needed to get him one, and Brant said, "No." I looked over at him, and I could see the wheels turning. Then he asked, "Mommy, where 'da baby store?" I told him, "We can get baby things at Target, and Wal-Mart." He shook his head, "No Mommy, where 'da baby store?" I said, "Lots of places sell things for babies." Looking at me like I was so silly, he said, "NO MOMMY, where 'da store Mommies and Daddies get babies at?" Stumped as to what to say, not expected to explain THAT to a 2 1/2 year old, I said, "Mommies and Daddies take care of getting the babies." He replied that he wants one to live at our house !!! First, I asked him if he wants a baby brother or baby sister. A quick reply, "A baby brudder." Then, I told him, "You'll have to share your room with him." Thinking this would get a negative response I prepared myself. He simply said, " 'Dat ok." A little later a sleepy little voice said, "Mommy, I gonna have to clean my room before he comes." Oh, the precious little one...someday sweetie, but definitely NOT today!
