All My Son Wanted for His Birthday Was a Baby of His Own

Other than a Ninjago cake and LEGOS, the thing my son wanted most for his birthday was a baby.

He’s been asking my wife and I a lot lately when our family is going to have another baby in it, and has been a little dismayed at our answer of “Um… not any time soon.” So instead, he asked if he could have a baby to take care of himself.

How could we say no?
