Seven year old insight

The other day Colton was sharing his amazing insight with me. It went something like this...

Colton: You know Mama, I think we would get a girl next if you had another baby.
Me: Really, what makes you say that?
Colton: Well, all of the rest of our families have a girl....Your family was you and Uncle Bubba. Daddy and Uncle Bobby had Aunt Stacy in their family. Now Landon and Luke will have Livvy. So surely we would get a girl next.
Me: Do you even want a sister?
Colton: Yes- as long as I don't have to play tea party.
Me: I don't think Daddy wants anymore babies.
Colton(very seriously): Well, humans don't decide that.....God does!!
Me: That's right.

That was good enough for me. I chose not to go into anymore detail on having babies at this point. I love the smart, innocent and wonderful insight of my sweet seven year old boy!!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE THIS!!! He is so philosophical. :) Of course, he's also SO RIGHT that humans don't decide...God does. ;) You were wise, too, to only give the info needed to answer the questions & no more. :)
