Todd got a new baby sister named Lily only a week ago. He was very excited at first but he started getting less and less attention from his parents. It seemed like the only thing they cared about anymore was the baby.
Todd decided to ask his mother if she wanted to play. His mom said no because she was too busy taking care of Lily. Todd was very upset so he left the room.
He walked down the stairs and sat on them. Then he thought of a great idea. He was going to ask his dad if he wanted to play.
Tom ran into the living room to see his dad. He asked him if he wanted to play but his dad said no because he was too tired from taking care of the baby. Todd ran off before anyone would see him crying.
He went outside to sit on his favorite swing and began to cry lots and lots of tears. It felt like everything was going wrong. He just wished he could have his parents back.
Todd decided to stop crying and be a big boy. He was still so angry at his parents though. He decided that the best way to get there attention was to make it clear he was mad.
