|Thankful Thurday: What CHRIXEAN is thankful for this week|
After much stress these past weeks, we were finally able to break the news to him yesterday. I am so happy and thankful for all the suggestions which were sent to me on how to break the news to Nicky "gently". But I guess the ultimate winner is the suggestion that we should get Nicky a gift and tell him that it came from the baby. Boy did that really work!
Allan came home bringing with him a gift package for Nicky, with a note on it that said:
Man, did that idea sell big time! As soon as he got the gift, saw what was inside (just a few small Matchbox cars) and the tag that it was from his unborn sib, he went flew out of his room and started calling the maids and his nanny, shouting "I'm going to be a big brother!"
The gift also came with a book, which I REALLY appreciate right now called What To Expect When The New Baby Comes Home.
But more than anything, I feel thankful that he "feels" the love from us and the baby. Even if it was through a gift that this was passed on, the idea to him that the baby "thought of giving him a gift" meant the baby loved him. I know this because just this morning he gave me a letter which he wrote for the baby!
And the letter goes:
2) Nicky's passing his entrance exams for 1st Grade in San Beda Alabang College. I haven't actually decided on his school yet (he's moving from a pre-school to a big school), but it just feels good to know that he has passed one of my top choices :-)
