It all started with eggs
This morning while I was making eggs for breakfast, I had a great conversation with Caleb.
C-"Mommy, do people in Africa not have eggs?"
Me-"Yes, some people in Africa have eggs. Not everyone in Africa is poor but there are a lot of people there that need help."
C-"Can we go there and give them our money. But we need to keep a little for us so that we can eat too."
C-"Did you know that we are going to get two kids from Africa? One is a baby girl and the other is a 4 year old boy" (I don't know if this is wishful thinking or if he's prophetic)
C-"Mommy, why are we going to adopt a baby and not have one from your belly."
Me-"Because there are babies that don't have mommies and daddies and we'd love to have one join our family."
C-"Can we play outside now?"
All of that started with eggs:)
I love these kinds of conversations with him. He's such a thinker and often challenges me.
