Child of My Dreams
It is only a few months after we had the twins. We are driving down the freeway, to where I don't remember. Somehow the conversation has turned to the fact that we have only sons.
"Well, you know, honey," I say to him, "We could always still adopt a girl."
"No. No we couldn't," is his instant reply. Four children is enough. We are happy with all boys.
I remember my heart breaking a little.

I am a self-proclaimed iced tea addict, and I love all things peppermint. I use ellipses entirely too often. I live with my four sons--Aaron (9), Noah (4), and Palmer and Vaughn (1)--and J.R., the guy they get their good looks from. If you don't mind dust and dog hair, come on in."
