Life's Big Questions

We don't often discuss JR's adoption, as I take the approach of letting JR raise the issues on his timetable. It's not that we hide his adoption, rather, we treat it very matter of factly and answer any questions he has when they arise. I don't know if this is the "right" approach, but it's our approach.

So the other night, I was surprised when Joseph raised the issue seemingly out of the blue. We were sitting on the couch, watching yet another episode of "How It's Made" and JR asked "Why did you and Dad get me?" "Because we loved you," standard response. "No Mom, why did you get me? Were you and Dad bored?"

Bored?

Where did that come from?
