The Wog's father and I were just talking this morning about how today is Polly's last Tuesday as an only child. In our hearts we know that having a sibling is ultimately a gift, but we also know that The Wog might not initially agree. Two of her playgroup friends recently became a big brother and big sister, so that has been good for The Wog; she shows a definite but limited interest in these sweet babies, and will continue to benefit from watching them interact with the world in new ways. But there's really no way to prepare her for what's headed in her direction.
We are excited for the arrival of the Golden Pig and know that The Wog will grow into a delighted, delightful big sister, but for now our priority is that she continue on her happy little way.
