I was reading the post about how a boy thinks his brother came into the world, and it reminded me of the day we brought my DS home from the hospital. DS was swaddled up taking a nap in his bassinet and my daughter, then 2 1/2 y/o, comes in and peeks over the side of the bassinet to watch him. After standing there for a good five minutes watching her brother sleep she looks at me with a very serious look on her face and says "Mama can he walk?" I reply "No Sierra he's just a baby." She considers that for a second then says "Well can he talk?" Again I give her the same reply. DD then comes and hops up on my lap and says "then why in the world do you want him?....he can't DO anything!" "I think we should take him back and get one that works right..."
LOL I will always remember that moment and laugh because she was very adament about not needing to keep this little creature who couldnt talk or walk! She did grow to adore her baby brother over time though!
Have you had any moments like this with your children?
