Telling a 2 Year Old

His dad didn't want to "tell" Jordan (who was 2 in July), so much as he
thought we should just talk about it normally, and he would just come to accept
it. We've discovered that there are a couple of things about this new baby
on his mind.
Jordan: Baby no
get my blankie!
: That's your blankie, honey. We'll get the baby a new blankie!
Different blankie for baby. This blankie mine!
This has been repeated any number of times, so this morning, I foraged in the
linen closet and found a quilt that someone had sent us that we'd never used.
I showed it to Jordan and he smiled really big!
new blankie! Baby no get my blankie now!
Last night, we got home after dark,
which is always an adventure for Jordan.
: That's right! Who lives in our house?
: And who else?
: Does Uncle Eddy live here or does he visit?
: Grampa Ed hasn't visited here in a long time, honey, has he?
But soon, Mama is going to go visit Grampa Ed.
visit Grampa Ed and get baby and bring it back!
ROTFL!!! I wish it was
