A brother friend

While watching Peter Pan's Return To Neverland last week, Daniel looked at me and said,

"Hey Mom. She has 2 kids."

"Yes she does."

"We need 2 kids."

"You want a brother or sister?"

"Yeah a brother OR a sister."

"Mmmm well it might be a few years, but maybe eventually."

Fast forward a couple of days and Daniel is sitting on the loveseat and I am sprawled on the couch reading.

"Mom a brother is a friend and a sister is a friend. I NEED a brother friend."

My child has all of a sudden decided he wants a sibling. I tried explaining to him that even if we had a baby RIGHT NOW, that it would be a while before he could actually be a "friend." Daniel's response? That I needed to have a big boy like him. I guess he is voting for adoption!

Hah! That's too adorable. No worries. Craig's aunt, when we were over there visiting, kept saying things along the lines of "So when are you going to put a ring on her finger?" "When are you two going to have a baby?" I wanted to punch her in the face.

NO! No brother friends anytime soon. I am just getting him to sleep until 8 I do not want to start the process over again yet.
