Last night I laid down in bed with Lucas to sing his usual nighttime songs. I hadn't put him to bed since Nathaniel arrived and I was savoring some quiet time with my sweet boy. After the songs, he, as usual, wanted me to stay for a few minutes. I was more than willing to agree. After a few quiet moments, I whispered to him, "Lucas, thanks for being such a great big brother to baby Nathaniel."

He was quiet for a bit and whispered back, "Mom, do we get to keep the baby?"

"Yes," I whispered back. "We get to keep him forever."

"Okay. Good."

Yes. Good.
