Right after we read "Love You Forever…"

"Do you love ME forever Mommy?"

"Yes, sweetheart, I will love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be."

"Why will I be your baby forever? I'm not a baby!"

"No, you aren't a baby anymore, are you? You grew and you grew and you grew, just like the boy in the story."

"But I was a baby? And I was in your tummy?"

"Yes, you were!

"Why was I in your tummy?"

"Because when a Mommy and a Daddy want to have a baby, that's where the baby grows until it's big enough to come out."

"Can you have another baby in your tummy?"

"Yes, I think so. Do you want a baby to come out of my tummy?"

"Yes please. I want a sister."

"Well, maybe you'll get a sister, but maybe you'll get a brother. We don't get to pick. When the baby comes out, it's a big surprise whether it's a boy or a girl."

"It's a big surprise? Like at Christmas when Daddy's present was a surprise and we couldn't tell him what it was?"

"Yes, just like that!"

"But…I want to pick. I want a sister."
