One afternoon after work I picked Kiera up from my in-laws house and she hit me with a demand.
Kiera: Mama I need a brother and a sister
Me: Really? You want a brother and a sister. Who is going to have this brother and sister?
Kiera: You are Mama.
Me: Well I don't really want to have any more babies.
Kiera: You need to have a boy and a girl for me. I need a brother and a sister.
Me: Well you have Lilly and Berkley, they are a girl and a boy, kinda like a brother and sister.
Kiera: No I want a human brother and sister.
(Insert me laughing now)
Me: Well why don't you ask Dada if he would like some more babies?
Kiera: No I can't ask Dada because he will say NO!
Me: Well I am saying no too sweetie. We only want to have you all to ourselves.
Keira: But I really super want a brother and sister.
Me: Kiera, you are getting ready to start school soon and you will have lots of little friends. And one day you will have a best friend that is like a sister to you and you won't have to worry about me having more babies.
Kiera: I don't want a best friend. Izzy is my best friend.
Me: Well Ok then.
And that was the end of the conversations. Here are some of my thoughts on this...
1. The thought of having 3 children scares the crap out of me. I can imagine 2 but it would be a struggle for us, mentally. 3 is just scary.
2. The fact that she wants a human brother and sister. How many almost 4 year olds would even think about the difference in species?
3. I think it's hilarious that she knows she can't ask Jimmy about having more kids.
4. Izzy is Jimmy's cousins daughter that is 6 months older than Kiera and they only see each other like 1-2 times a year. The only reason she is Kiera's BFF is because last time they saw each other 4+ months ago Izzy gave Kiera candy. Won her over right there.
I know without a doubt that Kiera would be an excellent big sister and very helpful, but it ain't happening.
