Last week we sat in the livingroom and she handed me some of her dehydrated apples and cranberries. Thinking she was engrossed in the movie, I walked back to my bedroom and started flipping through the catalog, only meaning to be there for a second or two. But just as I was getting up to walk back to the livingroom, I noticed my little princess peering around the corner. She ran to the bed, climbed on, and proceeded to share her snack.
Today I tried to get in some exercise and she continued to hover very close to me, asking me to hold her. My eldest was playing a game and her brother was trying to put something together in the playroom, and no one was including the Buttercup. So I picked her up and we ventured on back to the bedroom. She feels left out a lot, so I decided to share a secret.
She’s only 2 1/2, so I figured she wouldn’t “get it.” I said, “You can’t tell the others, but Mama has a baby in her tummy.”
“Mama? Baby? Tummy?” she asked as she pointed to my tummy and smiled.
“Yep, and it’s a secret.”
She patted my tummy, leaned over and kissed it, patted it again and said, “Baby.”
It’s all I can do to get her to give me a kiss on the cheek, but she didn’t hesitate once, even without prompting, to give her little sister or brother a kiss. This is a good attitude I hope to keep up, because the Buttercup very much enjoys being the baby in this family.
