As I get closer and closer to Nagini’s due date, we have been talking with Bunny about being a big sister. We are not sure if she really gets that Mommy’s big belly means there is a little sister in there.
I recently read a few tips on transitioning to two kids and one of my favorite ideas was to read books to help kids get ready for the idea of a sibling. Since Bunny and I spend good chunks of days reading together, I picked up a couple of books from the library.
She really took to We Have a Baby by Cathryn Falwell. The first couple of times we read the book, there was a furrow in her face, kind of like, “Hmmm, I’m not so sure about this.”
But now she really loves reading it over and over and over again. Of course, we’ll have to see if it sticks in her mind when Nagini arrives. She has been patting my belly and saying, “MeiMei” (Little Sister) a lot. So, we’ll see!
