Sibling Rivalry is Alive and Well at our Home
It seems that we don't need multiple children in our home to have a serious case of sibling rivalry. Zoe has banned Mimi, the golden retriever, from her playroom and the poor dog isn't even 5 months old yet.
The new sign is just one of many sibling rivalry symptoms I see happening since the dog came to live with us. Mimi is getting blamed for everything from missing and broken toys to falls that cause cuts and scrapes to... wait for it ... really smelly, stinky farts. The new little sister really is a menace to Zoe's society.
We might all need to go to family therapy soon : )
