I wonder if you have any idea how much your life is about to change.
I’ve no doubt mentioned that Thing 2 will soon become a big brother. Well “soon” is most likely tomorrow, as his mum is currently in hospital and either has been or soon will be induced.
I stayed a bit later than scheduled to look after Thing 2 whilst all the hospital malarkey was sorted. Whilst I was with him I tried to talk to him a little about the fact that when mummy comes home she will have a baby with her, and then he will be a big brother. He knows the word baby, and he indicated the cot when I was talking about the baby. But I’m not sure he really understands – he’s not even two yet, after all.
It’s going to be a big upheaval for him, no doubt about that. And I may not be his parent, but still I’ll do my best to keep things as normal as possible for him to help him through this transition period.
