We haven’t told Elizabeth specifically about the baby- October is a long time for a three year old to wait and our history isn’t the greatest.
However, I have had these two conversations with her:
Jen: “Elizabeth, what would you think if we got a baby to live at our house?”
Elizabeth: “Mama, we already have a baby!Â We have Doda!”Â (This is Doda, if you need a reminder.)
Jen: “What would you think we got a baby to live at our house?”
Elizabeth (with great enthusiasm): “Yes!Â A real baby!”
Jen: “You think that would be a good idea? Would you share your toys with the baby?”
Elizabeth: “No.Â We better get a pretend baby instead.”
