We tentatively picked the name Alex for our future son from China. ( We have no news. It's been a long and frustrating process.) Meanwhile Kenton's sister Janelle is expecting a baby in January. They plan to name her Abigail.
Janelle and co. were here recently and so there has been lots of talk about Baby Abigail. I've been talking about how excited we are that Abigail is coming and we're putting some hand-me-downs away for her.
I started to suspect that Kaitlyn was confused. She started talking about when Abigail gets here. I tried to explain that Abigail is growing under Aunt Janelle's heart in her belly and that after she was born she was going to live with her mama and daddy and not with us.
It has been a day of tears and questions for her.
Is Abigail going to live here? Why not?
Is Abigail from China? Why not?
Is Alex coming soon? I want him now.
Is Alex growing in your belly? Why not?
How do you answer that?
I'm not good with these questions. And I really didn't expect to get hit with the hard ones from a three-year-old. I thought I had lots of time to think these through.
