I am so excited and loving the connection that my little girl already has with my bump! I thought with her only being 2 (3 in October) that she wouldn’t really understand it at all, though at times I think she has a better understanding than my hubby! 😛
Most mornings she comes in says good morning to me and then will proceed to cuddle my tummy and say good morning to baby! She is convinced she can see baby through my belly button, and will sing to baby, talk, and ask question to baby through my belly button. It is adorable and always makes me and the hubby smile! She will lay on my bump when baby is Kicking and laugh away as baby kicks her little head, then will tell baby off for kicking mummy in the tummy!
At the moment I am finding it hard when bending down and all the simple things.. So My little girl always laughs and says baby is making you sore mummy, he is growing in your tummy with his blood. I find this a great little understanding she has, as she knows that a baby is growing in my tummy and yes like everyone else baby will have blood inside! She tells me about how she grew in my tummy and that she left her toys so baby can play win them, she finds great comfort in knowing that baby has toys to play with, if you suggest that baby is just floating about she gets quite distressed and upset about how baby will be scared then!
I don’t think I give her enough credit, she will often come off with things or tell me things that I would never expect her to know, like that people have blood in them, baby’s are delicate, she said to my hubby one day about how she would like a construction toy and this blew his mind! It’s not a normal world for such a little character to know right? Where has she picked this word up from, I would say we never say that word in this house because well.. It’s an odd word to use in a daily context, or at least I think so anyway! There is many others but now that I’m trying to think of them I can’t remember, which seems to happen far to much for my liking!
I work as a classroom assistant and find some of the things the kids come off with adorable, and they always know how to make you smile! The kids I work with are in P6 here, so they are 9 coming 10. One of the girls came up to me when we were out in the playground and said to me so seriously “Mrs, I have a question for you, over the summer did you get pregnant?” I felt like replying, no .. I just ate all the pies! Lol! But I did say to her yes I am, she leaped with joy and gave me a giant hug and it made me feel so lovely! She then carried on to say I’m glad that you just aren’t fat now because that would have been embarrassing, but I think your going to be a great mum, I would love you to be my mum. How adorable can little ones be? Obviously this made me smile and made my day 🙂 then the other day a boy in my year opened the door and said “beauty before the beast and obviously your the beauty” how sweet is that? More so because it seemed just like a genuine thing for him to say, there was no back reason to why he said it, he didn’t want anything from me, it was just a genuine compliment 🙂
Anyway; must dash!!
