Where do you want to go?

Recently, Harrison has been pretending to rock a baby. I'm not sure where he got the idea of it, but I guess when he sees a baby, someone is often rocking it. The other day at lunch, we had a "conversation" about babies:
Harrison: "Baby, mine" while doing the rocking motion with his hands.
Me: "That's cute Harrison. Do you want a baby?"
Harrison: "Momma, baby."
Me: "No, mommy doesn't have a baby, but we can pray, that maybe one day, God will give mommy another baby."
Harrison looked like he was deep in thought
Harrison: "Baby...Wal-Mart?" he said with his finger in the air like he had a grand idea.
I almost fell out of my chair laughing so hard. Clearly, we have a little to teach him about where babies come from. It does alarm me that he seems to think if we could go just get a baby, that we might do so at Wal-Mart. I always would make fun of my friends who were bad drivers, that they got their license from Wal-Mart. A baby from Wal-Mart? That sort of makes me cringe. We desperately need a Target close by if my son is that acquainted with Wal-Mart.

Remind me not to take him to Wal-Mart when I'm keeping him. I might end up with a baby!

If you go to Wal-Mart to pick up a baby do you mind exchanging mine when you go??? I would prefer a non-sick, non-teething, non-temper tantrum throwing, non-hitting when it doesn't get its way version. See if they make those for me?? Also, I'd like to spend $50 or less. Let me know what you find.

In the mean time give that precious little boy a hug and smooch from me and my current baby. We love him so much!

That is funny. So, so funny. Wal-mart has brainwashed your kid- even at 2 he already thinks that Wal-mart literally is the answer to all of life's problems!!!!!

Unfortunately, they have brainwashed me, too. I make a minimum of 25 trips to Wal-Mart every week during wedding season and each time I go I hate myself just a little bit more.

On another note, I am praying like mad for you... love!
