Essence of Now: some days its hard to be the big sister

Oh sweet girl. Six weeks ago we brought home your baby sister, and life hasn't been the same since. Not for any of us, but especially not for you. The adults in your life, mama and daddy, we knew what we were getting ourselves into. We tried to explain it to you, tried to keep you involved... But how do you explain to a two year old that life will never be the same?

Eventually this little bundle who does nothing but cry and take mama's attention, will become your closest playmate, your best friend -  we brought you home a sister, and while that doesn't mean much to you now, it will - someday.  She'll stand beside you at your wedding and hold your hand when you have your own babies. She'll be your confidant and get into all sorts of trouble and fun with you... some day. But for now, its ok. Its hard to be the big sister. It'll get easier.
