Alternate Title: Not Now!
At our house we have a Family Home Evening board. It has a peg for the song, prayer, scripture, lesson, activity and treat. Each of us has a tag with our name on it hanging from each of the pegs. Except one tag is blank, because there are only five of us. There are also 6 chairs at our table, which, if you can do simple math, means there is one empty chair.
Isaac has always been a little OCD and is very particular about everything. (He is going to drive his wife crazy someday, as I'm sure Kelly can attest.) Anyway, every once in a while Isaac will point out that there's a blank tag on the board or take note of the empty chair at the table. Last week both items seemed to hit him at the same time. I happened to be watching him as his attention alternated between the tag and the chair several times before he looked at me and asked, "Can we have another baby?"
I know I want another child, but I'm not sure now is the time so I deferred to a Higher power, "Ask Jesus," I answered.
Isaac took that to heart and immediately folded his arms. "Everyone do what I'm doing. We're going to say a prayer...
"Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for this day. Please bless Mommy to have another baby. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."
Please don't tell me that I have to another baby just to strengthen his faith!
Coincidentally, Jack has been walking around all week saying "baby."
Are all signs pointing to "yes?"
