  • Mine JUST did the other day, and it was the first time I can remember her saying that. The reason she asked was quite comical, though! I have 3 girls, and each time I give birth, my cousin takes the other children while I'm in the hospital. She has kids their age and they love to play together. So my daughter said "When are you going to have another baby so I can go spend the night with Sadie (my cousin's daughter) again?!" LOL! How about we just set up a playdate or something...that seems extreme to me LOL!!

  • Yes my you gets wants a baby sister. It's just not going to happen. I feel bad because she's such a nurturer to babies and loves them but I don't want anymore. So she has to settle for cousins and friends babies.

  • No. My youngest was born a week after my oldest turned 3 years old, and he knew I was having a baby. Now they are 7 and 10 and have told me a few times that they are glad there are no babies or dogs in our house to mess up their toys, LOL.
