ThatManILove is out of town this week. And I have our Little Brother and his little brother for the week, as their mom’s gone to a teacher conference in DFW.
After I dropped the boys at their respective venues, I called ThatManILove. Here’s how that conversation went:
Me: I’m enjoying these boys. I miss when Brody was little, taking him to school, doing the breakfast thing, hanging out.
TMIL: Well, we could always adopt a couple more kiddos.
Me: Right. And you’d come in the door one day, and, like you did with Zanna the Wonderpup, say, “Jane. Do you realize we’ve just signed on for a 13 year commitment with this pup?” ; except we know now the commitment would be 30 years plus!
TMIL: Yeah, I guess you’re right. But, babe - look at it this way– we might be a little closer to having grandkids if we went ahead and adopted children now and raised them up.
Me: The way our boys are going, you’re probably right!
