Nate apparently enjoys Maggie, because he's rooting for another sister. Jack figures he doesn't have a baby brother yet, so he votes to get one. Daddy and I sit there mostly silent--after interjecting that this entire conversation could be moot--flicking amused glances at one another. The boys continued with great animation:
Nate: I want a sister.
Jack: No, a baby brother!
Jack: No, a boy!
Nate: I want a baby girl!
Jack: Baby brother!
They paused for breath, and then I, not looking their direction so they don't see my smile, hear Nate say:
"OK, Jack, let's do it this way...
Rock, Paper, Scissors"
