When I was pregnant with my last baby, I was so nervous about the relationship he would have with my daughter. They would end up being just about 2 years apart in age and although I kept hearing that it was a great age difference, I worried about everything. Would my daughter feel jealous, insecure or left out? Would she take it out on her baby brother? Luckily, we experienced zero negative feelings from my daughter when my son was born. It was both surprising and also a huge relief… she absolutely loved her baby brother!
Fast forward a year and half and everything changed. By this time, my son was doing almost everything his big sister could do. He was walking and talking, eating at the table with us and yet still getting a little extra attention from mom. Suddenly my loving daughter became jealous of everything concerning her brother. Although I tried to even out the time and attention spent with each child daily, the jealously lasted for quite a while.
Then one day, the crying and whining during their playtime together turned into the sweetest giggles and full on belly laughs. Though many things have changed over the course of the last two and half years, one thing has stayed the same – Carter’s clothes have been a huge staple in both my son and daughter’s wardrobe! From Carter’s Little Baby Basics to their newest line of organic clothing, Carter’s Little Planet – Carter’s has been along for the ride as though they were part of the family, like Carter’s has been there right from the start.
