People ask if they are jealous, if they ever ask to “send her back.”
But it’s quite the opposite: our 3-year-old and 5-year-old adore her. Even six weeks later, they fight over who gets to hold their baby sister. Liv was in tears yesterday because she felt that she wasn’t getting her fair share of baby-holding. Kayla always washes her hands first (without being asked) because she doesn’t want the baby to get sick.
They also fight over who gets to throw the diaper in the trash. We have a Graco Touch Free Diaper Pail that opens “like magic” and, apparently, it’s quite the thrill to have that job.
I’ve been praying that our three girls will be the best of the BEST of friends…and it appears that my prayers are already coming true.
