I have an 11 year old step daughter who just went through her mom having a baby. She makes comments all the time like "yeah and I'll have to babysit" saying it very dryly and unenthusatically. I have never told her she'd have to babysit and I don't want to make her ever feel like her new baby sister is a chore. Her mom makes her babysit (also I think shes too young to babysit) I want her to be excited for her new sister to come into the world. She is 11 but she acts more like a 14 year old lol. I wanted to know if theres anyone out there in a similar situation and what you are doing to make them excited and feel apart of it. She came with us to register, she helped us pick the name. she'll be at my baby shower, and be there the day I deliver...I feel like her mom is making it real hard on us to make her be happy about this. I feel like it's a lot easier to make a 4 year old excited about something like this than a pre teen! Help!
