Daddy, talking to the kids at dinner time, "Hey guys, guess what?? mommy has a baby in her tummy!! You're going to have another brother or sister to play with soon!!"
E and Z: "yay!!"
Mommy: " Do you think it's a little brother, or a little sister?"
E: " I think it's a sister!!"
H: throws her bowl of food on the floor (about the only thing that hasn't changed in my life in the last month)
Z: " I think it's TWO brothers!!"
Mommy and Daddy: (nervous laughter) " uh... No Z, there's only one baby. A brother would be nice wouldn't it?.. I guess we'll just have to see what God wants to bless us with".
