Telling your child that they're going to be a big brother or sister is a big moment. Parents have been breaking out the video cameras more and more to capture their children's reactions to the news of the baby on the way, and thankfully for us, they're uploading their videos to YouTube. Last week we saw how one family with three kids, soon to be four, took the news that Mom was pregnant -- it was meltdown city. Those kids were absolutely incredulous that they'd have another sibling and burst into a chorus of whines and tears. This video, on the other hand, is of two parents telling their young daughter that she's going to be a big sister and to say she's thrilled is an understatement. Her pure joy is something you just have to see.
The first three minutes of the video is the little girl trying to sound out the words on the t-shirt that read "I'm the Big Sister." If you don't have the patience or the time for that, fast forward to the 3:20 mark and let the happiness wrap around you like a warm blanket.
Beyond sweet, right? And I thought that was a cute idea, giving her a shirt like that. This is what you'd hope the moment would be like when your eldest finds out that she's, in fact, the eldest, and so much more.
Somebody hug me!
How did your child(ren) take the news that you were expecting?
