N has been a KorKor for slightly more than eight months, and even though he clearly adores the babies, I’m beginning to think that the novelty factor may be wearing off a little.
N: Mummy, I’ve decided that I have enough brothers and sisters already.
Me: Oh really? That’s good, because I don’t think you’re going to have any more siblings anyway.
N: Ya, two brothers and two sisters.
Me: Huh? What are you talking about? You only have one brother and one sister!
N: Two brothers, me and Didi. Two sisters, Meimei and you.
Me: I’m your mummy, not your sister.
N: Mummy also can be sister, right?
Me: No, cannot.
N: Oooohhh… I didn’t know that. So one more sister?
N: Mummy, do you think Grandpa is going to have a baby soon?
Me: Erm, why?
N: His belly is so big! I think he’s going to have a baby, you know.
Me: Hmmm… then do you think Daddy is going to have a baby too?
N: I think… maybe Daddy is going to have two babies?
Me: Haha. No, Grandpa and Daddy aren’t going to have babies.
N: They’re just fat?
