Kids Say the Darndest Things

So we've started introducing the idea of adoption to the girls.  They both seem very open to the idea of getting a little brother or sister.  Kaylee wants a brother, but Kera wants a sister.  Kaylee did have a little concern though.  Our conversation went something like this:

Me:  Are you excited about getting a new baby in the family?
Kaylee:  Yes, but what if our house gets too full?
Me:  What do you mean?
Kaylee:  Well, if we get a baby, then when I have a baby there won't be enough room for all of the babies.
Me:  But the new baby will grow up and be a big kid like you.
Kaylee:  But what if he doesn't?!
Me:  Don't worry.  We're getting a human baby that grows up just like you and Kera.
Kaylee:  Okay, then the new baby can help me take care of my babies when I'm a mom.

I could hardly hold the laughter back.  She is such a sweet girl.  When she's grown she'll be a great mother.  She's already a wonderful big sister!
