A little boy said to his mother and father, “I want a little baby sister. All my friends have baby sisters.”
“Well, you pray for one, and if it’s God’s will, He will give you one.” they told him.
He prayed for months and finally forgot it. Then one day they took him to stay at grandmother’s for a few days, and when he returned, his father took him to his mother’s bed.
His father pulled down the cover and said, “Look, son, a little baby sister.”
Then he pulled the cover down a little more, and there was another little sister!
Then he pulled the cover down a little more, and yet another little sister! “Son,” he said, “Aren’t you glad you have three baby sisters? Aren’t you glad you prayed for a baby sister?”
“Yep,” the little boy replied, “but aren’t you glad I quit when I did?”
