G and I had the most amazing conversation last night as we were getting ready for bed. She had started earlier playing with a bunny and calling it her sister. She said that bunny knew everything and didn't have to go to school but would go to work with her. She talked to it, at it and about it. She named it Beverly Baoxiao. Too cute.
Then she started giving long complex syllables for her little sisters name. So then we discussed names for a baby sister. We both agreed on Maria but no middle name yet. G said she would be Chinese like her. I had to sadly correct her and say she may be Vietnamese but would be Asian like G. Then we talked about where the baby sister would sleep and how old she would be and what she could and couldn't do.
Needless to say, G is not ready for a baby sister. She would let baby sister sleep with us on the outside, not close to me, or maybe on G's tummy when she was afraid. But at least she is thinking. And it is a step up from last time when she said baby sister could sleep in her bed alone.
I may check into the Vietnamese process; I am willing to wait for a referral in order to pay off debt and get the house sold and the one we are in bought. I need to pay parents back or have a plan in place for it.
