My children were 6 and 7 when we found out we were pregnant. We went to the book store and bought all kinds of books on how to talk to the boys about the impending arrival of their new brother.
We began to go through the books and my husband and I quickly realized the first 2 or 3 pages we would probably skip this time around.
A few days later I arrived home and found the boys had found the books and were reading. (I did forget they both were avid readers by now).
My oldest son who is incredibly shy, stumbled on his words as he tried to ask daddy a question. He just couldnt get it out. So his little brother stepped up to the plate.
He looked straight into dad's eyes and shouted "What Tommy is trying to say, Daddy when the fishies came out of your balls did it hurt?"
I do believe in retrospect we should have read those first few pages to them!!!
