Hey Lisa (Woodard 2009), I didn't know you have twins. I have twin boys that are 21 years old. How old are yours? Boys? Girls? Both? Anyway, we will have a baby in the house in December. Lulu is usually pretty good with children, but skiddish. She's not known for being a "people person" with adults she doesn't know in the first place, but has always been fairly tolerant of children--go figure. That being said, the way I hope to handle our situation is to never leave her alone with the baby, and when he is old enough, teach him to love her and be gentle with her. She will be almost 5 years old when he's born--6 to 7 years old before he's really mobile. She has her napping spots that frankly he probably won't even be around. I'm hoping it's not too hard to keep them separated.
My life is much richer because I have friends like you.
