As Sebastian and Collette get older and understand more, I try to be as honest with them as possible. It can be hard to talk about grown up things at a level they can understand but they often surprise by how much they understand.
I told them about the coming baby, that it's in my belly and all that. They seem to understand and remember when I ask them about it. And because the first trimester always kicks my ass, I have told them that the baby can make mommy feel sick and tired sometimes.
In light of this, Collette has developed a sympathy pregnancy. She, too, has a baby in her belly - a baby girl, at that - and her baby is making her tummy "ouchy" and also making her sleepy. I guess she is also in her first trimester.
It's things like this that make me really love the stage they are in right now. Too darn cute!
