joel: i can't wait for april 28th.
me: why because the baby will be here?
joel: ya, but especially because when the baby comes out of your tummy, we won't have to go to church.
me: ummmm... you still have to go to church. mommy and the baby will stay home for a couple weeks, but you guys and daddy will still go.
joel: what?! that's not fair! i want to stay home from church like lindsay young and her baby.
me: well, when you push a baby out of your tummy, like mommy and lindsay, i'll let you stay home from church...
apparently he thought he won. so naive.
