After our disappointing news of last week I forgot to share Jacob and Joey's reaction to the fact that anotha brotha was on the way.
In a perfect world I guess they would have said something like,
"Well golly gee mom and dad. That's sounds like a super dee duper I idea."
Instead it went a lil sumpin like dis...
politely said, "No thank you." and then began naming a variety of other families that he could go live with
but that we could still be his friend and see him often.
He did, however, request that we have a baby instead.
At which point my uterus detached itself from me and took off running full tilt down the street.
how do I put this.....
And then about 20 minutes later he had his markers out and began writing welcome home signs and asking if Joshua could sleep in his room.
Joey had a completely postivie reaction right out of the gate....
"Joey! Whatcha think about having our friend Joshua in our family?"
"Yeah, that's good!"
5 minutes later.....
"Joey! Won't it be fun to have Joshua in our home?"
Bless his little forgetful heart.
All of that to say.
They are pumped.
They are ready
and my ohhhhh my
so are we.
I-800 approval coming any day now
Uterus last seen on I-5 headed south.
Happy 11th Birthday Ben!
