When you welcome a new baby in the family, it’s a joyous and exciting time for everyone in the family. Excitement aside, however, it can also be a difficult time for an older sibling who may feel excluded in some way–especially if the older sibling isn’t really old enough to understand everything that is happening–and all of the changes that are underway. This is kind of why Pink’s “big sister” party for her daughter Willow is brilliant.
When Pink and her husband Cary Hart welcomed their second child and son, Jameson, into the family, they did so with a “big sister” party for their daughter–as a way to include her in the momentous occasion. The Jewish singer took an incredibly adorable snapshot of the three of them and shared it on her Instagram this past Sunday. Willow looked just like her mom with long pink locks–and looked super happy to be an older sister.
Many older siblings often feel jealous and resentful of their young siblings (boy do I know, considering my older sister hated my existence for the first 15 years of my life). This is why Parents.com recommend that making regular one-on-one time with your older child is definitely necessary–so they don’t feel somehow replaced, even if it’s something as simple as going to the post office or grocery store with them.
