Just What I Needed

How is that Zoe seems to know exactly when I need a good chuckle?

Yesterday I spent a good portion of the day cleaning & organizing. Because of that I was able to list several items for sale on Ebay & Craigslist (which by the way, is my new best friend!). Well, one of the items I'm getting rid of is a Pack & Play that was purchased when we adopted Zoe. So, after taking pictures of it & listing it for sale, I set it in the corner of the dining room.

Later that evening as we were setting down for dinner Zoe noticed the Pack & Play. Here's the conversation that followed:

Zoe - A crib like thing?

Me - Yes, it's called a Pack & Play. We originally bought it for you. However, it was only used once so Mommy is selling it.

Zoe - Oh, I thought maybe you & Daddy were surprising me with a baby sister!!!!!!!

Cracked me up. She has been saying for about the last two weeks that she wants a baby sister. And, not just any baby sister. She says that she wants to go to China & get a baby sister from an orphanage. (If you know anything about me at all, you know that I would travel to China again to adopt in a heart beat. However, my husband Paul has definite reservations.)

Anyway, with the last two days events (see previous post to get filled in) I needed a good laugh. Not only is Zoe a ray of sunshine each & every day, but that girl brings more joy than I could have ever imagined!

That little Zoe is something else! I know she makes your heart smile so much!
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of such young lives. Such a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with their families and with you!

Hint hint!!!! I'm thinking you should travel back to China and bring home another beautiful dimple faced baby :)
