Today at Breakfast

Sam:  "I think I have a baby in my tummy."  He then proceeds to lift his shirt, peering down at his belly.
Me: "I don't think so buddy."
Sam: "Can boys have babies?"
Me: "Nope, only girls have babies."

Semi long pause.  The sound of pancakes being chewed.

Sam: "I want twenty-FIVE babies!"
Me: "Wait, you want to be a BROTHER to twenty-five babies or a DADDY to twenty-five babies?"
Sam: "Da big brodder."
Me: "Gee buddy, I don't know if we have room for twenty-five babies; where would they all sleep?"

Pause.

Sam: "Well in da crib!"
Me: "Aw honey, we can't fit twenty five babies in Charlotte's crib!"

Another pause.

Sam: "We can stack them!"

Go for it Jen! Maybe they could make a reality TV program about your family...the Brown Stacks. Nice!

I read this aloud to Garett and butchered Sam's sweet voice in the process. He is adorable and quite an engineer in the making.

We had a repeat of this conversation in the car yesterday, the current number of babies wanted is down to twenty, but he is fixated on the stacking idea still.
