Oh, Brother!

Lily and I were on our way home this afternoon and she says this to me: "Mommy, when I grow up I'm gonna marry Thomas and when he grows up he can marry me and we'll marry each other and then we'll have a baby brother." (Note: Thomas is the 1 year old son of my friend Mickie.)

I explain to her that when you love someone very much and you get married then you can make a baby, but it won't be a baby brother to you it will be your very own baby. Lily quietly contemplated this for a minute or two and then she says to me: "Mommy, you love Casey very much, right?" I answer that yes, I love him very much. She then says "Well, then you should make a baby!"

I laughed the rest of the way home.
