Simon asks me every day: “Da baby come out your tummy today?” And every day I have to answer “Not today, buddy.” It’s going to be a long 3 months of waiting!
Yesterday he was on my bed rubbing my tummy and talking about all the things he will do to help when the baby comes out. He will hold it, and hug it, and bring mommy diapers. Those ideas all came from my coaching.
He came up with one idea all on his own. “When da baby comes out,” he said with an air of importance, “I give it fwee dollars.” (Translation $3.) I asked, “You think the baby will need three dollars, huh?” He answered confidently, “Ya. And diapers, and binkies, and blankies.”
Sounds like Simon knows just what his little brother will need. I’m glad he’s planning ahead!
