Captain America

RJ came home from school today declaring that he had the PERFECT name for his new “SISTER”…. The conversation went something like this:

LIAM:  “Isn’t it perfect Mommy?  Can we name my baby sister Captain America?? Please, Please, Pleaseeee??”

ME:  Sure, that’s the perfect name for the baby until it is born!  But how do you know you are going to have a sister?

LIAM:  I just know it… she’s my beautiful sister in your belly.   Wow, I wonder how she’s going to come out!  (HORRIFIED LOOK)  Mommy, will they cut your belly open?

ME: Gosh, I hope not, Buddy… we will have to see though I guess.

LIAM: Just tell Captain America that Big Brother loves her.

(PRAY for me… here’s to 7 more months of questions and conversations with a six year old!)

Seriously though… he just melted my heart…

AND THEN, I OPENED THE CHILD’S BACKPACK AND PULL OUT HIS SCHOOLWORK AND THE FIRST THING I SEE IS:

Proud Momma.
