Since I am using this blog to document some of the 'things' that are happening within our family I thought I share with you all a conversation Francesca had with me last night (when she just couldn't fall asleep and kept calling for me).
(over the monitor I hear...)
Francesca: "Mommy, Are you there?"
Francesca: "Mommy, I need you."
(so up the stairs I go into the girls' bedroom to see what's so important!)
whispering...because Annabelle is sleeping
Mom: "Is everything OK?" What do you need baby?"
Francesca: "Can we go back to China?"
Mom: "Someday..." (hopefully)
Francesca: "Can we go right now?"
Mom: "No baby, it is night time and its time for you to go to asleep."
Francesca: "Can we go to China tomorrow?"
Mom: "I don't think so. Why do you want to go to China again?"
Francesca: "I had a very good time in China and I just love my little sister. Can we get another little sister for me and Annabelle in China?"
Mom: "Hopefully - someday - we'll be going back again for another little sister or little brother. But if we can't get that little sister or brother, I promise that we will go back to China again for a visit."
Francesca: "A little brother! Oh I always wanted a little brother! Can we go to China on Friday when Daddy comes home and get a little brother?"
(boy how I wish it was that easy...)
