Mom to Mom Mom to Mom
Dh and I are planning on having another baby when our ds is 2.. He's 14 months now so we've got a while. But a friend of mine brought this up. I have a ss who is 10.
When our second child is born I want our son to come into the room and be the first to see the new baby without anyone else around so he can be totally himself and not shy around the new baby. My friend said she would only have her own children in their first. My ss is not interested in his younger brother now.. He pays no attention to him and really acts like he could care less about him.
On the other hand, I wouldn't want to upset dh by having our son in there first without my ss. But, in my heart of hearts I only want our son in there right after.
What would you do?

They'll both be included.. Just at different times


Quoting Janet:

 So do I.


Quoting SlapItHigh:


I think you need to include both children.

Honest question -- why did you ask for our opinions?

Didn't I respond to you in detail a few posts back? I could have sworn I did.
Why does anyone ask anyone's opinion on here? It's just to hear others thoughts. Whether I agree or not is up to me, I just want to hear what others think :) :)

If you answered that question before, I missed it.   Just curious what you were hoping to gain from hearing people's thoughts.

I just don't know how people don't get it. It's beating a dead horse with all you dramatic women. CM is like high school all over again lol! Everyone posts whatever they are thinking, feeling or curious about. Why is my post any different. I've had a ton of slack from this post l, which is fine, as I am well aware that there are about 95% of women on CM looking for a little online war, and I'm loving the special attention from an endless amount of seemingly immature women. There is no other answer for your repetitive question other than..... I like hearing opinions. Sometimes you gain something and sometimes you don't, who cares? I find it fun hearing different opinions.

"A ton of slack"? We must be reading different threads.
