The Imitation

I can tell Macy is growing up because she has started helping me answer the questions we hear on a daily basis.

What country are you from?

I’m American.  (Although every now and then she’ll say, I’m Chinese)

How old are you?

I’m three!

What’s your name?

Xi-xi!

Is that your little brother or little sister?

My little sister!

Yesterday, in the elevator, someone asked us if Selah was a girl or boy.  Macy quickly answered – she’s a girl!  That’s my little sister!

And then she added to it – as if she’d heard it all before – (pardon my direct translation)

“I don’t yet have a little brother”.

The lady who was asking giggled.  “Well, tell your mom to have a boy next time!”

Oh, Macy.  Only in this country.
