Lily: "Mommy, you know the baby you had in your tummy before Aidan?" (This can't be going anywhere good....) "I wish the baby you had in your tummy before Aidan hadn't died."
Me: "You know Lily, we were very sad at the time. But it's okay because if that hadn't happened, we never would have had Aidan."
Lily: "Weeeeeellll, you know Mom, Aidan isn't all that nice to us anyway."
Dear (future) Aidan,
Lily really does love you. It's just, well, sometimes you can be a little tough on her. Please take no offense that she might have preferred an inviable embryo over you.
