Seth was off to an impromptu Saturday play date, so it was just us and Riley, eating lunch. We were talking about Seth's friend. He's got a new baby sister.
Riley looked up from her food(mashed potatos is the new fave), and said,
"I wish we could have another baby."
The back of my hand flew to my forehead, and I let out a huge, "Ugh."
"Don't give me.....Ugh(the back of her hand flew to her forehead and she duplicated the exact noise I had made)! I want a baby sister!"
The referencing my speech and gestures!
The wanting of a baby. It wasn't so long ago that the thought of babies induced panic. You see, they cry and when they do, it hurt her ears.
She's not getting a baby sister. At least not one of the human variety. Though I would go to the ends of the earth for this girl. After all, she does it for me everyday.
