Mommy, I'm Ready...

Me: Ready? Ready for what?
Andre: For baby brother.

[pregnant pause]

Me: Why do you want a baby brother?
Andre: Because I want to...
Me: Why do you want to?
Andre: Because I take care.... because yaya take care of my baby brother.

Me: How about a baby sister?
Andre: I want a baby brother.
Me: Why?
Andre: Because I'm a boy.

With logic like this... how can I win this argument?
I think Andre wasn't happy with my answers thus far so he went around the dinner table and bent my head close to his...

Andre: Mommy?
Me: Yes, Andre?
Andre: Are you ready?
Me: Ready for what?
Andre (slightly exasperated): For a baby brother!
Me: Mommy's not ready...
Andre: Why?
Me: Because it's hard to have a baby... my tummy will get big...
Andre: Like Tito [Vinnie]?

I give up.....
