Dinnertime Conversation

7:45pm. Rushed home from soccer practices to get Taylor to youth group and throw together a we-need-to-go-grocery-shopping dinner of scrambled hamburger and rice. But we're actually sitting down. Together. Eating dinner. Albeit, minus Taylor.

Me: "Brit, if you could wish for one thing, what would it be?"

Brittney: "I'd wish for a sister. I really want a sister." (I hear the collective "aaaawwwwe," by the way.)

Me: "Oh, Brit. I know you do. Jord?"

Jordan: "I'd wish to have anything I wished for when I wished for it, but that when I wished it would be gone, it would."

Me: "Wow. Very creative. Ian?"

Ian: "I'd wish for a remote controlled truck."

Me: Actually, Nate and I were laughing too hard by this point to really say anything. I guess wishes are a lot simpler when you're five or younger.

Would brit settle for a female cousin? ...although you would have to move closer and we don't know if it is going to be girl yet.
