Both my niece and my daughter have acted freaked out by the idea that life existed before them. For example, my niece saw a picture of my BIL and my sister together and asked "Where was I that day?"...she was REALLY reluctant to accept the answer "You weren't born yet" and instantly made up reasons she wasn't in the picture..."I was at grandmas that night" "Maybe I was with auntie?"
My oldest went through the same thing, but it seemed to get better when I had her younger siblings...she could then see that she was alive before I had her sister...and before then, her sister wasn't there yet.
I was just wondering how common it was.
