When my oldest just couldn't fall asleep...and had an important question to ask!

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...)

As my Jewish friends would say, "Oy! From your mouth to God's ears!" If it were only that easy, indeed. I'm so happy things have transitioned so easily for your family. Francesca sounds like an amazing big sister.
