So Monkey (my 8 year old) said to me "Mommy, you know how you wanted another baby some time in the future?" I confirmed that I had indeed said at some point that I wanted 3 children following the birth of my son Bean (15mos). Well Monkey suggested that I go to an adoption agency next time when I was ready to have the baby. When I asked her why, she said "that way we can be sure to get a girl this time". Witty, cunning, and rational, that is our Monkey.
