Baby Watch 2012: The Sibling Class…


This article is more than 12 years old and may not have been updated since our last site redesign. It may contain outdated information or could be missing images.

I don’t know if they had such a thing when I was a kid, but we took the munchkin to a ‘sibling class’ last week. Since we’re in the final countdown stages of Baby Watch 2012, we’re getting the little one used to the idea that she will soon have a sidekick. What this means for me is that I’ll likely wind up tied to the ground Guilliver’s Travels-style in a few years – a victim to the mischievous female offspring. For the immediate days ahead, we’re getting Daughter #1 excited for Daughter #2.

The little one is outgoing, and like Dad – can’t sit still. I do real bad with sitting in classes, offices, movie theaters – basically, gatherings of any kind. In fact, I get such bad anxiety while “sitting still,” I always have to be on an aisle seat to have an easy escape. I think the little one is the same way. Even before class started, she was up running around and investigating the world around her.


There weren’t a ton of kids in the class, but the group was all attentive – especially our munchkin. Basic instruction on “do’s and don’ts” was provided, along with some visual aids to familiarize the kids with what to expect. This was all followed by a vastly-dated movie (on glorious VHS) following a family and their new baby as their first child made the adjustment.


The little one did pretty good, but not without a temper tantrum in the midst of our hospital tour…


Have any of you ever done the Sibling Class? If so, how did your children react?
