My DH & I are now TTC our first child together but will be #3 for us also. I have an 8 year old girl & he has a 9 year old girl from our first marriages. We recently told them that we are planning on having a baby soon to get them excited and prepared for the idea of having a baby in the house. We both thought that they would be really happy, esp my DD since she would no longer be the "little sister" anymore. We couldn't have been more WRONG. They immediately started griping and moaning about how they absolutely do NOT want a baby brother or sister and that they are just fine with the way things are now. Granted, they've both always been the "only & 1st" grandchild on both sides of our families so I know a lot of it is just typical stubbornness of not wanting to share any attention, which is normal, I guess. But I really thought if we talked about it enough and made it sound exciting and let them see that they will have a big role in this as well, that they would come around to the idea. Ha! Yeah right! They want no part in it! Has anyone else had this issue? How did you handle it or did it go away on its own? They aren't selfish or bratty kids in general, so that's why this has really shocked me :/
