Last night at bedtime, E and I were talking about babies, since my sister just had twins and babies are on her mind a lot right now.
"When I'm a grown-up, I can have babies," she said.
"Yes! When you're a grown-up, you can have babies of your own. Would you like that?"
"Yes, but only when I'm a grown-up," she replied. My heart jumped with joy at her sense of responsibility at such a young age.
"And when you have babies of your own, you will love them so much, and they will be the best thing in your life!" I suggested.
"Mommy...Where's your brain?"
Perfect delivery, and just another reason why I love her.
