I often make up stories at bedtime, and one night she asked me to tell her about the day she was born. We had been to a baby shower and one of the things we did was each mom told about the day her baby was born. We had been told in advance no horror stories or anything that would upset the expectant mother. The kids were playing in the other room, and then we realized they had become very quiet. They were all listening. So that night I expanded the story and started with Once upon a time there was a man and a woman who were very lonely because they didn't have a child....of course the story ends with the baby being born and being named. She never tires of hearing it. I think it makes her feel loved and wanted.
Anyone else do this?
