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:
Well this brought tears to both Matt and I. Tell Captain America we love she/he too!
Liam has such good insight. We liked his sentences and we are so proud of him, also.
