The Orphan Store
Abby's newest obsession is orphans. She learned what an orphan was and she thought it was just so sad that that could actually happen to someone. She asked me if we weren't able to have Liam and Lily if Paul and I would have "bought a couple of orphans instead". When I told her, "Probably not," She freaked out and was on the verge of tears when she said, "but we're good people and we would want to love the orphans, wouldn't we?" And when I started to laugh, she got mad and said that it wasn't funny at all! Also, she has been corralling herself up with the babies and saying, "Mommy, pretend that this is the orphan store and you want to get a couple of orphans." Then, when I get there, she puts her arms around both babies and looks up at me with her best, "poor me, I'm an orphan" look. I have no idea where she gets this stuff... I blame her dad. Maybe I'll just be happy that she thinks we're good people and that she has compassion for others. But I can giggle just a little can't I?
