I’ve heard stories of toddlers touching their mom’s tummy and saying, “baby!” then the mom finds out she’s pregnant a couple weeks later. I’ve also heard of toddlers knowing what a baby will be before it’s born…like they have a 6th sense about it. Happened to a friend of mine…her kid was right about the next 3.
Recently, Pierce has been saying he wants a baby sister. A couple days ago, he said it again.
“I know honey.”
“Where’s my baby sister?”
“You don’t have one.”
“Where is she?”
“We don’t have a baby sister, honey. You have a baby brother and a big sister.”
“I already have a baby brother. I want a baby sister.”
Just to see what he’d say, I asked him once if he wanted another baby in the house and he said yes. I asked if he wanted another brother or a sister. And that’s when all this started. I’m sure some is power of suggestion (though I’ve never encouraged, just asked). But now he’s got me thinking if he knows more than I do. Only time will tell, I suppose.
