hey jealousy

Before last night, I'd never watched "Parenthood" so I don't know the characters, but one of them has a new younger sibling and is sooooo resentful, and the idea is just crazy ridiculous to me. I remember watching shows as a little kid that attempted to address jealousy of new babies, and even then it confused the crap out of me. I've never known an existence without siblings. Some girl on "Barney" was wicked pissed at her baby brother for, like, existing? Or something? And I guess I GET the concept, and whateverrrrrr probably kids go through that. But. What is more exciting than a new tiny alive toy?!

What I'm trying to say is if any of my futurekids have resentment issues about a new arrival, I'ma give 'em a smack in the mouth.
