New Siblings

So yesterday, I had a conversation with Breanne that went as follows:

B-Mom, do you know what my favorite stuffed animal is?
M-Your Zoey, of course. (she has a stuffed animal Zoey, from Sesame Street)
B-No, Mom! She's not a stuffed animal, she's my sister! Silly Mom! My favorite stuffed animal is my dog with a heart.

As of late, Breanne and Janey have become absolutely insistent that Zoey is their sister, and Elmo, Snoopy and Fairy (a pink bear, named by Janey, bless his breast-cancer-awareness-heart) are their brothers. There is NO convincing them otherwise. I find it quite comical, Cory's working on finding a way to convince them they're not really people. They're not buying it yet.

I would like to leave a comment about their brother, Fairy, but I just don't even know what to say... ;)

I think I was 6 or so before my mom convinced me that my pretend friend wasn't my sibling (I didn't even have a stuffed animal stand in). She never told me she wasn't real, for which I am thankful. Some things they can just figure out on their own, and you just enjoy the comedy in the middle!
