Xander's future plans

This morning Xander came up to me and said in all solemnity, "Mommy, when I grow up, I'm going to have two babies-- one boy, and one girl." "Oh, that sounds perfect!" I replied. "And," he continued, "I'm going to have two girls." "Sounds good, honey!" "MOM, I'm not done yet... And... I'm going to have 41 boys adopted from China."

He wasn't being funny-- rather, he was very serious and earnest about the whole thing. I loved it. But I loved what he ended with the best of all... "And, I'm going to live right next door to you so you can see me every day and my two babies and two girls and 41 boys from China!"

Love that boy!


  1. That is awesome! What a beautiful heart he has!

  2. You guys are a hoot - I have 'imaginary dinners' all the time - generally over what ever happens to be in the fridge!

    How you guys manage your schedule is well beyond me - I don't get it at all - but I love it!

    and Xander - well - let's just say the apple didn't fall far from the tree - but with 41 boys - hopefully a little farther than 'next door'! ;)

    hugs and love - aus and co.

  3. We love that boy too!!! Can we move next door on the other side?

  4. Grandma better have a big house

  5. Hey can we come and live at your home? We will even settle for a meal that is planned in your head and heart. We know you must be starting a new business with those fantastic photo shoots---not sure how you did them. I do remember when my social life centered around visiting the doctor. Hope all your visits this month are positive. Lots of love

  6. I'm so in love with Xander, if only the Aus man would let US have an older guy of our own! Chase so needs a brother to rough house with when his sisters just want to color...but I respect his limits.

    love the Bee Happy shirt! do you find it helps or not to have the sleeves closed for her for comfort? I have other ideas....but ONLY if its helpful!

    love you guys!
    Mrs Aus
