BEFORE WE WERE BORN?

Sometimes, Mommy and Daddy talk about things that happened before we were born.

“Where were we?” we ask them.

“You weren’t born yet,” says Daddy.

“But where were we?” we ask, again.

“You were just specks in the universe,” answers Mommy.

“That’s not right,” says Isabelle, “is it, Austin?” We just look at each other and grin, because we know the real story!

“Before we were born,” continues Isabelle, “we lived in another galaxy, known as the Cookie Way. It’s right next to the Milky Way. We had milk and cookies whenever we wanted!”

“When we first met each other,” says Austin, “we loved each other so much, that we decided to be brother and sister.”

“Together, we searched everywhere for the best parents. Once we chose you to be our Mommy and Daddy, we were both very excited about becoming a family!” explained Isabelle.

“Before we were born, we went to a special baby school. We learned all about what it would be like, when we became babies. We learned how to cry in different ways, so our parents would know what we needed,” Isabelle explained, “and how to speak in a secret baby language which grownups can’t understand!”

Austin added, “We also learned that we would teach our parents how to love someone more than they ever thought possible!”

When we graduated from the Baby Academy, it was time to go and live with our parents. We could finally be a family!

To decide who would be born first, we played ROCK/PAPER/SCISSORS.

“Rock beats scissors!” exclaimed Austin “I get to be the oldest!”
