Nothing For Me!

My brother and his wife just had the most adorable baby boy about a month ago.

They live in Jamaica and the baby was born in Miami.  Lucky them!

Anyway, so I ordered a few bits and pieces online for my nephew and had it all delivered directly to them.

After everything arrived, my sister-in-law said that I’d ordered two of the one of the things by mistake and what should she do.  I told her she could exchange it or if baby would need two sets of vests, then to hang on to them.

Instead she sent them back to me (through her dad) for when my baby arrives!

Her dad rang me this morning to let me know that he was back and that he had a parcel for me.  My mum had sent some maternity t-shirts also.

Once I received the parcel, I took out the vests and showed V.  He asked if they were for him.  We looked at them carefully, held them up against him and came to the conclusion that they were too small for him.  I told him they were for when his baby brother turned three months old.  V wasn’t impressed.

He then spotted the bag and asked what was inside.  I told him they were my clothes.  He wanted to know where they had come from and why there wasn’t anything for him!

He was so upset that the baby got something and that he didn’t, that he started crying.

Is it always going to be like this?

  1. I don’t think so, but when you have the baby have a present ready for V from the baby. I know friends who have done that and it seems to help as everyone brings baby presents.

  2. If you read my blog you’ll see we’re just about going through this. I got Small to choose some things for Tiny and I think he just about understands that they are not for him, though he is younger.
