"Where will the new baby sleep, Mommy?"
"Next to Daddy and me in a bassinet, Stephanie," Mommy said. "Later the baby will share your room."
"But it's my room! I don't want to share it."
"You'll sleep in your new big bed, and the baby will be in your old crib. There will always be enough room for you."
"Will the baby play with my toys? The blocks and trucks are okay, but not Rosie! She's mine!"
"The baby will get some new toys and share some of yours. But Rosie is just for you."
"What will the new baby eat? My food?"
