Baby! Not Belly!

There’s a wonderful side effect to being pregnant and having a toddler.

Tornado S: (running up, pulling his shirt up to reveal his belly, and patting it) Baby!

Me: No, not baby.  Belly.

Tornado S: (laughing with shirt still up and patting his belly) Not belly!  Baby!

Me: Mommy has the baby.  Tornado S has the belly.

Tornado S: (laughing and patting) Baby!

Yes, Tornado E did this too when I was pregnant with Tornado S.  Now Tornado E just plays with his baby doll, Bobby.

Tornado E: Mommy, Bobby is crying.  He doesn’t like daddies.  You hold him.

Me: Babies love their daddies.  Feed him a bottle.

Tornado E: (giving the baby doll a bottle) He likes it!

Me: Don’t forget to burp him.

Tornado E: Ok.  (Burps the doll.)  Mommy, Bobby’s stinky.  I need to change him.  (Tornado E proceeds to change the doll.)  Mommy, why doesn’t Bobby have more clothes?

Note to self: buy the doll some more clothes.

Tornado E: No, Tornado S!  It’s my baby.

Note to self: buy Tornado S a doll.

    I LOVE that your son has a doll! I did this for our sons (against my Neanderthal husband’s wishes) and have never regretted it. Bought them a play kitchen set, too!

    What a great idea! My boys would balk at it now – wish I had thought of it then.

    They will make stellar fathers some day.

    “He doesn’t like daddies.”

    MLR~ We have a play kitchen too! It took a whole year for The Husband to realize they loved it.
    Jane~ My mom bought Bobby to teach Evan to be gentle with baby Sean. In another post, I’ll explain why we had to get toy baby bottles.
    CynthiaK~ That’s what I’m hoping.
    Gibby~ The funny thing is Sean didn’t like anyone but me because I fed him. I wonder if Evan remembers that.
