My morning was totally made by a little conversation my daughter and I had on the way to daycare this morning. It all started out the door when she said my baby was in her way and she had to get to work. I followed with,
"Well...aren't we miss bossypants." She said, "thats ok, your baby can't hear me in your tummy, she's asleep." Well.....we finally make it to the car and halfway to school when in the middle of her singing "Somebody I used to know" (yes really..knows the lyrics better than I) she blurts out, "Is your baby coming out today?" I adjust my rearview mirror and say, "Nah, not til Christmas".....Silence....Madison says, "I'm going to catch your baby when she comes out."
It was all I could do not to laugh at her. Little woman has it all figured out. Funny thing is this comment made complete sense to me because she insists that she is going to be there when the baby comes. She said she has to tell the Dr. her name and hold her.
So sweet It must be great to know how much she already loves the baby!!!! She's even going to deliver it for you hehe
My DD is a bit younger than yours, if I ask her what's in my belly she will say "baby". But I don't think she fully grasps that the baby will be coming out and joining our family! I can't sit for her to meet her new sibling and realize that it's coming home with us!
I know. It amazes me how much she understands what is going on. I have already planned for her to to be the first person besides my husband to meet the baby. I want her to really feel important in the welcoming of the baby.
That's sooo cute!! My kids are over the moon with excitement about this baby (they are 3 and 5). My son went to the hospital with us when my daughter was born. He was only 22 months old though so he was oblivious, lol. My mom was there watching him and they were in my room most of the time, they only stepped out for maybe a half hour, during which time my daughter was born. Seeing him meeting her for the first time was a precious experience. I can't wait for that this time around, since now they are old enough to grasp what is going on.
