Kid Power

We're all about polling data in our house. You never know when it will come in handy. A few weeks ago, people were still asking me if I was pregnant all the time. (Since then I've started wearing snugly fitted shirts and the questions have diminished in frequency. Also my abs are getting strong from sucking in all the time.) Given recent public interest in my (non)gravid state, I asked the girls if they'd ever want a new baby in our house.

They each thought for a moment.

"Not today," Ellie replied.

"No baby," Ada said. "I want a brother. A BIG brother, not a baby brother. His name's Calvin."

So there you have it. The children have spoken.

"No" but "he has a name" is really funny. Good to let the girls in on that decision. :o)

I was following a twitter conversation between a mom and dad about whether or not to have another because their youngest asked for one. Funny thing is that dad was gung-ho, so I finally said something like "really fun to watch this unfold" on Twitter. Mom reminded him that he had a vasectomy, so the conversation was really for naught!
