Corbin (4 years old) and Lynn (1 year old) met their baby cousin last night (2 weeks old). Their reactions were absolutely hilarious!
Corbin saw my sister breastfeeding Brooklynn (my niece) and asked my sister what she was doing. My sister calmly said that Brooklynn was eating. Corbin got a very concerned look on his face and asked "She's eating you?". lol. He then came to me and told me "Mom! Brooklynn's eating Bambi (what he calls my sister) under her shirt!" I said, "What?" He said, "Brooklynn is EATING Bambi!" I then had to explain that babies eat FROM their mommies, they don't actually eat them, and that my sister was going to be okay.
Later on, we let the kids hold the baby (with help from both my mother and I, of course). Corbin did a good job and told Brooklynn that he loved her. It was cute. Then we sat Lynn down to hold Brooklynn... wow.
I swear Lynn thought she just got a brand new doll. She immediately kissed the baby, tried to pat her head, and when she started to get too wild, we separated them. Lynn was having NONE of that, and she kept lunging towards Brooklynn with her arms outstretched! We finally distracted her, and everything was fine. It was SO funny!
I just had to share. I love kids' reactions. What funny reacitons have your kids had?
