What advice can you give me about bedtime, like routines and stuff?
And also abotu eating, would a 2 & 1/2 year-old still need a highchair? Or would a booster seat on a normal chair be ok?
Mommy to my amazing 6 yr old dd, we , and 27 weeks and have been sick the whole time so far, grrrrr!!!!!!!
That's why I'm more set on Ana calling him Sam - because even though he lives with me & we've been together for bout 2 years things could still change alot. I think she's had enough loss and confusion in her life that I don't wanna make things worse.
Another thought I've been having and would like opinions on: words to use when talking about death. Of course I'm gonna have to address this issue, but from what I've been reading infants under about 4 can't really grasp that death is permentant and will probably keep asking questions. So I wanna make sure I'm using language that is suitable for her to understand and not scare her. I was thinking:
Your mommy and daddy were in a very bad accident. The doctors tried to make them better but they were very ill and they died. So now they will be with you in your memories, and pictures. But you won't be able to see them anymore.
Do you think that's ok? I was also gonna add:
Your mommy and daddy looked after you when Mommy Sarah (me) couldn't. But now Mommy Sarah is gonna to look after you and love you and your other mommy and daddy have gone to be angels.
