    Story of my life

    There were origionally 5 in our family. Me and my husband NIck & our 4 year old triplets Scarlett Genevieve, Aiden Nicholas, and Carliee Magdalena. Then I found out i was pregnant...again..with triplets! As soon as i found out i made surr that once a week i read this book to my kids because who knows what kind of rivalry would have went down once Morgsn Catalina, Bentley Scott, and Jace Trevor were born. Now i am currently pregnant, yet again, but only with one child. A boy!<3 his name is going to be Travis Ray. Looks like we are going to have to break out that book again! Such a fantastic read and put together so well. I own every single book ever published, and let me tell you, there is a lot of them.

    Taming Jealousy Aimed at a New Baby

    Sister Bear looks at her new sister, Honey, and proclaims, 'What a nuisance!' while Brother Bear plays happily with Honey. From Sister Bear's perspective, Honey brings disruption and draws the attention away from Sister Bear. Brother Bear remembers what it was like when Sister Bear was born, so he doesn't find it too disruptive. The story looks at how to make a young sibling with a new baby sister or brother feel better. Sister Bear notices that Honey is 'crying, feeding, burping, spitting up, and diapering around the clock.' 'And when it wasn't those things, it was cuddling, dandling, fussing, and kitchy-cooing . . . or shopping, shopping, and more shopping . . . .' Sister Bear is not fond of the smell of deployed baby diapers, and likes it even less when she is asked to wash out the diapers. Mother Bear notices that there is a problem when Sister Bear leaves Honey out of a drawing of her family for a school project. Sister Bear explains that 'there wasn't enough room on the paper!' Mother Bear pulls out the old videos of when Sister Bear was a baby, and Sister Bear sees that she got the same treatment that Honey is getting now. Sister Bear goes back up to her room, and draws Honey into the picture. It's bedtime, and Sister Bear wants to know, ''Mama,' said Sister, 'could we take a peek at the baby first?'' ''You know something?' she whispered, 'She is kind of cute.'' As you can see, young siblings of new babies often feel displaced and disgruntled by all of the attention the new baby gets and the attention that they do not receive. Parents would do well to share this book with that older child. If you do have videos, films, or photographs of when the child was younger, those are good to look at as this story suggests. Naturally, the best thing to do is to use the new baby as a way to make the older child feel more important and loved. That has to begin before the baby comes home. After you read this book, also think about ways that you can find out how your child is feeling before problems arise. Bedtime is a great occasion for such chats. Help others find the bright side of change . . . always! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution

    Stan and Jan do it again!

    In this excellent book, Mama Bear has a new baby who Sister gets sick of! Read how younger silbings can be a pain, but you grow to love them very much.
