“Jasmine would you please hang these balloons on that wall, your little sis would love them, jasmine please clean the bed for your little sis, jasmine lets go to the shop to buy little new clothes for your sis”. These sentences were said to jasmine by her family members “father, mother and her grandma” but she hated all this. Everybody was very happy as a new baby girl but jasmine wasn’t. After a while, her mom and dad entered the room with a small cute baby girl in their hands and looking very pleased and happy. As they entered the room, they put the baby girl on the bed and started playing with her. Her dad lifted her and started playing, her mom singing poems to her and grandma also doing the same. As though by jasmine everybody was acting like a child after the NEW baby came. “What should we call her?” asked grandma. “Maybe we can call her Ashley” “jasmine do want to take Ashley in your hands?” asked grandma. “Sorry grandma but no, I won’t. I’ll never do this” grandma realized that jasmine was not happy with Ashley. She asked jasmine that do you like Ashley and she got an answer, “no” “why my dear, she’s your sister” “ just because she’s more cute, sweet and little as compared to me and now the worst she’s snatching yours and mom’s and dad’s love from me. And from the she entered our home nobody is giving me importance as they used to give me before Ashley” jasmine shared her insecurity.
Grandma was amazed to hear all this and she never expected this from her sweet granddaughter. She said, “Whatever you said I heard and now I’m going to say something to you, you must hear it carefully.” Then grandma held her hand and started. Whatever you said is not true my dear! Just look the innocent eyes of your sister: she wants your love and care. She’s not going to snatch anything from you but will give you lots of love. Hold her in your hand s and you’ll forget all your insecurity. My child, I can understand your feelings but you don’t realized how lucky you are! You're blessed with a sibling with whom you can play and when she’ll grow up you can share your feelings with her, she’s your sister and will be a friend when you will be alone Saying this grandma asked jasmine to sit on the sofa with her and carefully gave Ashley in her hands. The little baby looked at jasmine and cackled. Jasmine was touched, her all jealousy vanished. She could not resist singing, “I love you my dear little angel…...................”
