The Important Things

Nini, the boys, and I ventured to the hospital today to partake in the “Meet My New Brother/Sister” class in the maternity ward.

This is the same hospital where I delivered Frick and Frack.  They have a “room-in” policy where the baby remains in the room with you during your entire stay.  In fact, the baby is bathed and cleaned up in the actual labor/delivery room (if you have a natural birth) and never leaves your sight.

During the class, the children colored, listened to stories about new babies, toured the maternity floor, and looked in a mother/baby room.

Upon entering the mother/baby room, the presenter was talking to the children about the features of the room.

What were my children enthused about?

Not the arrival of their new brother

or all the machines with buttons and flashing lights

but

the table that will hold the tray of food from the cafeteria.

Maybe I can get them to eat veggies from the tray table….

    What a great program. I like that “in room” policy, that’s great 🙂

    How cute! I took my son to a big bro/sis class and had a similar reaction from him, except he was most interested in the juice box they gave him. Kids are funny…you just never know what their “priorities” are going to be on any given day! Congratulations and good luck!
