Today: “This Is Exasperating!” Boy Doesn’t Want To Be A Big Brother Again
There’s a video going around of a little boy who wasn’t too happy about his mom having a new baby once again.
In the video, she told her son she was pregnant and he threw his hands up in the air, covered his face and then said “What were you thinking?”
He didn’t understand why his mom was having another baby when she already had two. “This is exasperating,” the little boy said.
He wondered why his mom wanted to have another baby and replace one of the babies she already had. He said it was “too much!” The mom explained that she would never replace them and he’s just going to have another brother or sister that he has to help take care of. He responded with “that doesn’t make no sense!”
Thank goodness the mom decided to videotape the conversation! They said they just had to get the little boy, named Trey, on the show. They were begging mom to bring the kids down and come chat with them.
