Spreading Rumors

So I've known that Ella really wants another baby brother or sister (she says sister). But until today I don't think I really knew how much she really wants one. And also thinks it might actually be happening. Perhaps it's a variation on the Field of Dreams - if you think it, it will come. It being a new baby.

Today when I picked her up from her class after church one of the teachers came up and said "Congratulations!" I knew by the way she said it what kind of congratulations it was and I immediately looked down to see if my belly was looking big for some reason. But she cleared it right up by saying that Ella shared with the whole class during circle time that what she was thankful for was "that my mommy has a new baby in her belly!"

Can you believe that!!!!!!?????

I actually laughed pretty hard and then explained that, no, I was not pregnant, but Ella keeps talking like I am. To the point of even naming the baby. She even informed the class that it would take awhile - like 9 weeks! Don't I wish.

Later on I saw one of the other teachers for her class and said, "J., just so you know, I'm not pregnant.". She replied, "I know, Ella's been saying that for awhile now and could tell you weren't getting any bigger so I figured it wasn't true." Oh man. I'm wondering how many people at my church think I'm pregnant. Now I'm going to be self conscious about wearing fitted shirts when I'm having a fat day (usually the times when I don't wear a fitted shirt, but still...).

When I told Ella later that mommy didn't have a baby in her belly, she started to cry and said "But I really really want one!" It almost made me want to say, "Ok sweetie, we'll have another baby just for you". Almost, but not quite...

be careful taking advice from the baby-factory over there. she's one step away from birthing an entire italian basketball team, so i would think this through...

go for it. i think it's so great that she wants to have another sibling. some kids make it so clear that they don't want to have antoher one--must mean you are doing something right over there and she's realizing the whole world doesn't revolve around her--fun story--what a sweetheart.

Megs,
You better hop to it! I'm sure Matt won't mind. Give Ella what she wants. That's too funny!
love you,
