i have no experience with having children, but i was three and a half when my sister was born. i was under the impression i was getting a doll or something from the way my parents described her to me. she'd give me baby-related chores everyday like picking out Katie's pajamas or handing mom the bottles and burp cloths at feedings. by involving me with Katie's care, my mom prevented me from resenting her for spending all her time taking care of Katie, because i was always there too. i was also given "big girl toys" to cement in my head that there was a new baby, and it wasn't me. if i wanted to be the baby i couldn't play with my new toys.
