When you're a parent -- and just to clarify, I'm not one -- you really just hope your children will get along (once again, making an assumption here).
If 27-year-old Carly Tansley had any fears about her 2-year-old daughter, Myla, welcoming another addition to the family later this year, she certainly shouldn't anymore.
Myla accompanied her pregnant mom to an ultrasound appointment the other day, and when she saw her unborn sister on the screen, the toddler immediately hugged the monitor and began crying. You can actually hear her sob,
I miss her... I love her so much.
First of all, that 2-year-old has an emotional intelligence that rivals most adults I know. Her understanding of this sisterly bond and the fact she wants nothing more than to be with this sibling whom she "loves" is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.
Personally, I have a hard time making out anything when I look at an ultrasound photo, so a child understanding her real, live sister is being shown on that screen is really impressive. That, or she's going to be terrified when her sister comes out and is not black and white and two-dimensional.
