My son drew me this beautiful picture.
It put a huge smile on my face because he has never really been interested in drawing or doing crafts and it wasn’t until recently that he would draw complete pictures, of a house and a tree and the green grass and blue sky with white clouds.
But this picture made me smile and almost faint at the same time.
Take a look here:
Yep, that’s a “baby sister”.
He wants one. As if he’s asking for the shiny new toy at the store, the “I want a baby sister” request has started. I’m surprised it took so long, actually.
Now that my little boy, aka the Destroyer is four-years-old and no longer has the cutesy features of a preschooler, the Boss, who is 6.5, wants a baby sister.
Even the Destroyer, who has been attached to my hip since birth and whom I always feared would be uber jealous of a baby in the house, has been very open to the idea.
Read my post here which I wrote back in November 2008 when I realized that I was happy with just two boys.
This recent incident has made me think – should we have tried for a girl?
But then I remember the pregnancy, the lack of sleep, the diaper changes, the hormones, the exhaustion, moodiness… and although I would love to have another child for all the joy a new baby brings, I only would if it was still the year 2007!
