Out of the Mouths of Tweens

My nephew, Erik, who's 10 years old, called the other night to ask about how my ultrasound went. He was quite fascinated as I told him that we're 11 weeks along now, and the baby is about the length of my thumb, but fully formed with fingers & toes and everything.

Then he said "You know, I'm really excited to have a new cousin. It'll be cool to have someone younger than me."

He cheered up even more when I told him that he should also keep in mind that Uncle Jeremy & Aunt Stephanie haven't had their kids yet either -- so there will probably be even MORE cousins younger than him. Yeah, sometimes it just feels good to know you won't always be at the bottom of the totem pole.

I asked him if I should make my baby a boy or a girl, and in a very matter-of-fact tone of voice, he informed me of the truth: "It doesn't matter what WE want, God's already made that decision for you."

Out of the mouths of 'Tweens.
