I LOVE my stepson. He is a great kid, and his father and I are expecting a little boy.
I do not want to leave my stepson out of any of this, and want him to feel like he is a part of this new start in our life, but... he is 16! If I am in labour for an extended part of time he will be stuck at the hospital bored.
I don't have any other family there to keep him entertained, as I am not letting them know until the baby is delivered.
Luckily, the hospital is near an easily transit-able mall, so he could go there for entertainment for the day, but if it is at night I don't know what to do.
Another thought is, just have my family bring him in when they come in to visit as they will be passing by our house when coming to the hospital.
Anyone have any other suggestions/thoughts?
Obviously, we will give him the choice to come or stay at home, but I was hoping to offer him some more options.
