The following are actual conversations that took place in the Lahman household. As the mother of an impetuous, free-willed three year-old, you know I can't make this kind of stuff up.
Me: Ok, Isaac, Mama is going to brush her teeth and put on her shoes so we can go to the Dr.
Isaac: Right, go to dr. Then we have to go to the store to get the babies.
Me: The babies? We have to do what?
Isaac: The babies. At the baby store.
Me: ....the.....BABY store?
Isaac: Yep. We have to get our babies from the baby store.
Me. BabIES? Like, more than one? How many babies?
Isaac: Two. We have to get two babies from the baby store.
Me: We have TWO babies at the baby store?!
Isaac: (looking at me like I am crazy). Yes, Mama.
Me: Ok, well....let's have this conversation with your dad when he gets home....
So silly me, I am thinking that Isaac is going to completely forget this bizarre exchange. However, when Ben got home....
Isaac: Daddy! We have to get our babies from the baby store!
Ben: (Looks up at me) WHAT?
Isaac: Yep, two ones. Two babies. At the baby store.
Me: Yeah that is what I said.
Although I am sure Isaac was just being imaginative or talking about some toy or the babies at his school, a teeny part of me believes Isaac somehow knows that we will have 2 more children. How he would know this, I do not begin to fathom.
Kids say the darnedest things, don't they?
