We have really been working hard around here to help Diego understand that he is still super special and that the birth of his second baby brother will not change the way we feel about him. Since my mother arrived last week, Diego has been a little extra naughty, a little defiant and a little extra silly (he mooned our new babysitter Yesenia in the kitchen!!!). Jose and I had a special date night with just Diego (he loved it!) and he and I sat down to make birth announcements after he expressed his concern that his classmates were mispronouncing his new baby brother’s name (they were calling him Georgie). I wanted him to go to school the day of my c-section with homemade muffins and kid-made cards.
Voila! We stuffed envelopes, added more stickers and now everyone will know how to spell (and hopefully sound out) Jordi Mateo’s name. I thought this would also be a nice way to let the other moms know that I have finally popped! They have been so nice to let me take the closest parking spot at school and asking if they could help in any way. Most important, this project took 3 days! Diego and I worked side by side on an “art project” right after school. It was definitely great bonding time.
Have a great weekend! And Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!!!!!!!!
