Mother Hen

As we prayed for a pregnant friend last night, my son interrupted.  “But the baby’s not a boy, mom.”

I put my hands on his small shoulders and whispered what I knew, “Yes, honey.  The baby is a boy.”

There was a second of silence.

“Buuuut,” my son stammered, the wheels in his head grinding. “Mommies can only lay girls.”

My husband and I shared a smirk.  Then I reached over, ruffled my feathers and tucked in my young.
