Telling Nana - Evolved Mommy
We decided that 16 weeks was long enough to wait. We needed to tell Charlie she was going to be a big sister.
An upcoming family portrait photo shoot seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Just after the photographer was finished with our family I took Charlie around to the back side of Nana’s sewing room, put a special t-shirt on over her all white dress and ask her if she knew what the letters on the shirt said.
“No,” she replied with a Duh-Mom-I-can’t-read kind of look.
“It says ‘Big Sister.'”
“Do you know why it says that?”
And then it started to hit her.
“Am I going to BE a big sister???”
It was at that point that the most excited and delighted expression crossed her face.
She gave me a big hug and ran straight to Nana… with the photographer capturing the rest of the story.
