Special Sibling Memories Before New Baby Debuts

In about a month, our family of four will become a party of five. My kids are really excited about their impending sibling who has made his or herself known by jolting my belly in their presence. But, before baby number three makes its debut, I wanted to do something special with each of my kiddos. Prior to my son's birth, I took my daughter on a long weekend trip to LA. Though she was very young, she still recalls the fun we had flying, hanging out at the beach and staying with my best friend. This time around, my daughter, now five, asked to get her ears pierced.

Then over the weekend, we fed my two-year-old son's obsession with firemen and animals by taking him on a fire truck tour after lunching at the Rainforest Cafe. I've never seen my lil guy sit still longer, smile wider or be so wiped out at the end of an adventure. I'm fairly certain he will remember this year as one that was momentous for more than just becoming a big brother. Did you do something special with your child before they became a sibling?
