Nate has been very busy with becoming a school kid this year and the pregnancy with the twins has not been a major item on his radar. When we rang the boys to tell them the news the conversation went as follows.
Matt – Nate, guess what?
Nate – What?
Matt – Your prayer came true (Nate had prayed for the babies to hurry up and come so he could meet them).
Nate – What prayer?
Matt – The babies came today, remember you prayed for that last night
Nate – Oh, are they boys or girls?
Matt – They are girls, you have two baby sisters
Nate – But I wanted boys….
Matt – Well, maybe you should have prayed for that last night as well
Nate – ….Can’t we just swap them for boys?
Needless to say Nate has hardly been affected this week, and was quite disappointed that his run of sleepovers with the grandparents had finished when I came home on Friday.
