Little ones welcoming home a sibling can have a difficult time. Good story. Well written.

Your story is good, and it brings out a very good point. It seems people ignore other children in the family when a new baby comes along.It was only natural that Parker was disappointed. I know that whenever we take a gift to greet a new arrival, we also include gifts for the other children. After all, no wonder Parker thought that babies stink. I'm glad that Grampa helped mend the hurt feelings of the little boy.

Very well written. Brought tears to my eyes as I thought about the birth of my own sons and grandchildren and how the earlier ones must have felt. This piece is full of wonderful empathy and deserves the highest recognition.

I liked this. That's a hard balancing act. Thanks for the reminder.
