My daughter is 5. She will have just turned 6 when baby is born. My DD has been desperately nagging for a brother/sister for the last 2.5 years. She hopes, prays and wishes for a sibling constantly. She is a gentle, caring little girl who is great with babies and toddlers. I'm thrilled to be finally giving her a bro/sis. I am now 18w. I still haven't told DD. Two main reasons: firstly I want to check all is well at the 20w scan. Secondly, she will be soooooo excited, she will almost burst, and 9m is a VERY long time for an excited five-year-old to wait. I am dying to tell her though. It's taking every bit of strength I have to keep my mouth shut. Two more weeks to go...feels like a lifetime. ANYWAY, my question is, when did you tell your little ones that there will be an addition to the family? How did they take it? Did you tell them in any sory of special way? I'm so excited to tell DD, it will probably be an anti-climax now, haha.
