I knew this day would come. Cooper hasn't seen her cousins or friends for a few weekends now. She's been sick and away from school and her classmates. Both mom and dad work full time. Basically she is lonely. I am eating dinner one night and she looks at me with those puppy dog eyes that sucker me every time.
"What's up babe? Everything ok?"
"Ya mom I was just thinking.......no, never mind."
"Tell me. You can ask me anything. Say anything to me. Tell me, what's on your mind?"
"No, I already know what you're going to say...."
"Well, I was thinking....I'm kind of really wanting a little brother or sister now."
