Out of the mouth of babes

I have to share with you something funny that my grandson said.

As you all know my daughter is expecting another boy. Everyone in the family was hoping for a girl (we all are excited that its a boy now that it is settling in). Anyway even my grandson wanted a baby sister, so when his mom and I told him it was a brother it took him a few minutes to be ok with it.
To help him along in his line of thinking I told him that a baby brother would be fun because when the baby got bigger we could all go to Gettysburg together (My grandson loves this place almost as much as I do).
I went on to tell him how much fun it would be to run and play in the fields and that he could show him all the big cannons and tell him about the soldiers.
He thought about this a minute and then said to me

"ok, but my brother will be little so he can't sleep on the top bunk (we had bunk beds when we took him up there last spring).
So I (meaning himself) can sleep on the top with mommy and my brother can sleep on the bottom with you(meaning me)."

Ok I told him that is fine, the baby can sleep with me on he bottom..

"ok momo (he says) but you have to hold my baby really really tight, because there might be a ghost outside the window"

DON'T YOU LOVE IT!! Can you tell who's grand-kid he is *big smile*
