That's not a very good title, but I couldn't think of anything better. Most of DD's friends have younger siblings, basically babies to toddlers and I feel so bittersweet around them. She recently has gotten more interested in babies and when visiting friends she likes to hold the baby and play with them, etc. She would make such a great big sister and I'm so sad I can't give her that. (although TBH, she loves having all of my attention) We were at an event last week and she was talking to her friend and his little sister came up and hugged him and they had the sweetest little sibling moment. it made me so wistful. just needed to get that out there.
DD is going throughts the same thing but with cousins. My niece just became a big sister and DD has been telling me that she would like to be a big sister. It's agonizing when she asks. I wish I could give her what she's wants.
Oh yes, definitely with you there. I want DS to have a sibling just as much as I want to have another baby, if not more. My siblings are such an important part of my life and I wouldn't be the person I am without them. DH on the other hand is an only child, and he has always felt that he missed out. It breaks my heart that DS will likely feel the same some day.
I understand exactly what you are all feeling, as much as I still have this desire and want to mother another child, I want my son to have a sibling as much or more...there are 3 little boys that live next door and when I watch my LO sit outside and watch them my heart breaks in a million pieces for him...
