There's been a lot of baby talk within my family lately. Everyone is pretty excited about us having another baby. Everyone except Aiden that is. He started out saying that he was going to help me give the baby a bath and share his movies, but the more he hears about the baby, the less he is liking the idea.
Today, my sister in law, Melody told me that when she took him to the Children's Museum last weekend, he said, "There is going to be no baby at my house" when she asked him about being a big brother. Uh oh.
I know when the time comes, he is going to adjust really well and they will be close. So I've been trying to leave the whole issue alone and keep baby talk to a minimum in front of him. However, not everyone in my family is doing that and Aiden is constantly hearing about being a big brother. And I guess today he was desperately seeking attention. I see no other explanation for why he did this...
Aiden was playing outside when he started doing his "pee-pee dance" so I quickly took him to the bathroom. He looked up at me and said, "I'm going to pee pee on you." I told him that that wasn't nice and sat him on the potty. I didn't sit right there and watch him the entire time and he pretended to use the potty. I've been trying to get him to learn to pull up his pants by himself. So when I helped him off the potty, I let him stand there for a minute. He was looking at me with this serious expression on his face and then he said, "I'm peeing on you" just as I felt something warm on my pant leg. I could not believe it! Why would my sweet little boy do something so disgusting?!
