DDC- I wrote a letter to the kids from the baby, then video taped it while my DD read it out loud. It was fun to watch their faces go from confusin to recognition. Then I posted it on Facebook to let the rest of the world know.

Re: Telling older siblings....

My 6 year old was counting how many fingers were in the family last night at dinner, so we decided to tell her that there were more fingers than she had counted. It took a little while for her to figure out that our clues meant we were having another baby.

Then she bursts out crying"I don't want a brother, I don't want a sister." I think she'll get over it, she is the oldest and is very particular.

Re: Telling older siblings....

We finally told my (4.5 year old) son. He said 'I'll be a little bit happy with another sister but a lot happy if its a brother'.
