What Happened When We Told Our Son He'd Be Getting Another Sibling

Having suffered through five miscarriages, my wife and I were thrilled when we found out our third baby is on the way. We thought our 6-year-old would share in our joy and celebration, so we decided to get the whole thing on video.

Big mistake.

Will, who turns 7 in April, is not happy with the news as he lets out a dramatic "OH NOOOOOO!!!" when the realization of what's happening finally sinks in. The news is bad enough, but he quickly tells us he'll be especially mad if he's saddled with a sister. And then he reads the ultrasound and we end up having to explain what a "yolk sac" is.

Oh well, he's got until September to warm up to the idea.
