Meego wants me to have a baby.
Well, not in so many words. In so many words, he said "I wanna be a big brother" which sort of led to my conclusion.
Two of his friends from school are about to become big brothers any day, and I also happen to know of a third friend that is due to become a big brother next fall. It seems that big brothers are popping up all over.
So I think it's mainly a case of peer pressure. All of his friends are doing it, so he thinks he should be doing it too. I can imagine the conversations:
"Hey, I'm gonna be a big brother."
"Really? How do you know?"
"Oh, I KNOW!"
"Wow. So what's it like?"
"Dude, you're going to be 10 years old soon. Don't you think it's time you found out for yourself?"
He says he's looking ahead to the future. He's thinking of where he wants to be in five, ten years.
"When Chaco and Wolfgang leave for college, I'll be the only one left", he ponders.
Well, it's good to have goals.
Can we change the subject?
