"Buying" a Baby

It's amazing what kids overhear when you think they're not listening.  It's also interesting how they interpret what they hear.

My sister told me on Saturday that my 5-year-old nephew came to her the other day and told her that he wanted to save all of his money for Aunt Tammy.  When she asked him why, Buddy said, "So Aunt Tammy can buy a baby and she can be happy."  She said that he keeps putting his change in envelopes and writing my name on it, and that they have a basket full of envelopes for me.  It was the sweetest thing I've ever heard, and I almost cried when she told me!

(For the record, I have absolutely no intention of purchasing an infant!  He had to have overheard someone talking about how I'm trying to save money for the adoption.  At 5 years old, you use money to "buy" things.  Hence, "Aunt Tammy is buying a baby."  I'm going to legally adopt.  Nothing questionable here.  I promise!)

I'm still busy looking into adoption agencies.  So far I've found one or two that seem promising as far as working with singles.  I still have a lot of researching to do though.  I didn't get to work on it much this weekend.  I had a good weekend though... Christy, my brother-in-law, and the twins came over on Saturday so the twins could practice in the pool for their swimming lessons.  Christy came back that night for Craft Night and we got a bunch of stuff done.  Father's Day was a busy day too.  I actually went and watched golf on TV with my parents.  Golf is so not my cup of tea, but it was fun hanging out with them.  :-)

Today, it's back to the hunt!  Hope you all have a great week!
