Baby Questions

Caleb's class went on a field trip to the Simmons School in Hope, Indiana. He spent the day in a restored one room school house learning how students a century ago went to school.

The little boys and I drove home from the library. Both sat glued to their new books. Cooper flipped through the pages and suddenly stropped and raised his head.

"Mom," I heard Cooper ask from the backseat. "When Collin turns four you need to have another baby."

Collin stopped glancing at his book and a concerned expression flashed upon his face. His eyebrows furled in puzzlement as if he never considered another baby was a possibility.

"Cooper, I don't think we're going to have any more babies," I announced.

He listened to my words and seemed to meditate on them for a moment. Finally, he asked, "So, you can just stop having babies?"

"Yes," I answered, trying desperately not to giggle.

I could almost hear Collin let out a huge sigh of relief. I imagined he was grateful to have his position as baby of the family intact.
