    You can’t be the center of attention forever, Max.

    Next line had better be, "Look! Max is smiling at his sister! Max loves his sister! Luci loves her brother!

    It’s not unusual for older siblings to be jealous of the attention that their younger siblings get from the grownups.

    True, although in my family, it goes both ways. If we give some attention to the older one, the younger one gets jealous too.

    My 3 year old grandson tried to play “peek a boo” with his new sister by covering her fwith a pillow and sitting on her! Jealous from the get go! But he says he loves her..Sigh.

    The antidote for Max’s jealousy is to get him to understand that he’s now a big brother.

    (And then he’ll have somebody to torment and push around!)

    Good reaction but there really isn’t much reason to talk to babies as if they are idiots…remember that they are always learning language and how to use it!

    @sjsczurek: I was a “big brother” and I always had to “set an example” for my younger sister. With an escape clause like that, she consequently got away with things I never could.

    That’s why when I see a mom out shopping with a little kid and a baby, I always say to the older one, Are you the big brother/sister? (In a tone conveying that they totally win if they are.) Cool! It’s fun to watch the pride bursting out of them. Then I might glance at the baby too, but the older one comes first. I know from experience that most strangers will coo over the baby and ignore the little kid, and I figure I can even that out a bit for them.

    most kids that age have jealousy mixed with love…makes for some very conflicted relationships. i still have the same feelings for my sister (i’m turning 40 and she 38 next year)
