Only Child Syndrome

Kay defiantly has it. Since we have 3 other children in our house this week it has been undeniable since they arrived at our house. She plays well with others, shares her toys, and is kind, so that's not the issue. The issue is when the attention is not on her, or another child is being focused on more than her. She cant stand it. She will either start pouting or make a big dramatic scene to put the attention back on her.

On another note, one of the kids at our house is a 6 year old little girl and let me tell you how much Kay is LOVING having someone to play with!! It has actually made it much easier on me because she is not constantly needing my attention. While we were driving in the car yesterday I could not help but imagine that those were my two children in the backseat singing songs and laughing together. Then I quickly realized that that will never happen. I will never have that. I will never have children that close in age that have things in common with each other. But it was nice to dream, even if it was just for a moment.

I was watching that show "Bringing Home Baby" today and they had a 3 year old who had only child syndrome. Totally reminded me of Kaylee. When you have your baby (which I know you will), she is going to be so jealous!
