handling difficult situations
Little Legs is 6, quite a bright intelligent little girl who I have the pleasure of raising. Little Legs found out a few months ago that both her Mum and her partner and her Dad and his partner were having babies due within months of each other, both little sisters for her, she wasn’t really impressed to be honest, and hasn’t really shown any interest. Last week, when we found out that Mummy’s baby was a little girls two it was said to LL how lucky to be having two new sisters. That night as we embarked on our jight time chatter, she asked me if Mummy had two babies in her belly, no I said
‘Well how can I be getting two new sisters the ?’ was the confused reply, after explaing that Daddy had helped make the new baby he and his girlfriend were having LL was firmly insisting that that baby was not her sister…..
How can a 6 year old understand the complexities of life? She thinks only babies from her Mum are her actual siblings. Her Dad’s new daughter arrived this week, and LL is still point blank refusing to acknowledge her. Maybe she will warm a little when she goes to see her, who knows.
