Why can't I have a brother?

Poor Mason. This morning he somehow got onto the subject of asking about cousins (he doesn't have any yet) and I started talking about my brother... he asked who his brother is and then if his sisters have a brother. We are totally done having kids, so it broke my heart when he started crying after I told him no, he will never have a brother :'(

Do any of you have kids that want more siblings? What have you said to them?

    Great response. I thought of saying some of these things, but we were in the middle of the hustle and bustle to get ready for school and so I didn't say most of them. Will have to remember these if it comes up again!
      Aw poor Mason! He'll get over it eventually. My niece said she wanted a sister instead of her brother when he came.
        poor guy :( he will love it when he's a bit older though. He will be the girls protector!
