Jacob's 12 Tribes

Jacob informed me the other day, "Mom, I want my sons to be 12." I had no clue what he was talking about and after a little more prying he explained, "Just like 'Jacob's sons were 12 tribes, so the Bible tells'...I want to have 12 sons." Whoa. I hope his wife up to the challenge.

Jacob's favorite song is "Follow the Prophet" and his favorite verse is about Abraham because his very own name is mentioned. Once I figured out what he was talking about and where it was all coming from, I asked him what he would name all of those kids and here is his list:

1. Michael
2. John
3. Eric
4. Lucy (I mentioned to him that this was a girl's name and he said he'd have daughters too.)
5. Isaac
6. Wendy
7. Ethan
8. Joshua
9. Aidan
10. Adam
11. Will
12. Sam

He is such a character. I'm pretty sure this goal of his will change in time. But who knows, maybe some day I'll be a grandma with LOTS of grandchildren.
