I was told that today at daycare, one of the teachers was holding a small baby, which drew Miles’s attention (as tends to be the case). As he stood there looking at the tiny child, his teacher said, “Miles, do you want a little brother or sister?”
“Yeah,” Miles said.*
“Well do you want a brother or sister?”
“A brother,” Miles replied.
“What about a sister though?”
At this, Miles put his foot down. “No a BROTHER!”
We currently promise neither.
* Thanks a LOT, daycare!
