I am approx. 17 weeks along, and we recently told our 4 yo that he's going to be a big brother. He didn't even acknowledge what we said. The next day he told me he hated the idea of being a big brother, but wouldn't say why. I dropped it, and figured he'd approach us with the idea later. He didn't. For DAYS. In fact, he still hasn't. When my family (whom he's close to) asks him about becoming a big brother, he just leaves the room. So at this point we've bought him toys, ordered a big brother tshirt with a cool truck on it, taken him for ice cream, tried to talk about it, listed all the cool big brothers he already knows, bought him more toys (seriously, i need help here)...
Has anyone dealt with this? I don't know what to do and the mommy guilt is driving me crazy and broke.
