LOL, it never does. There's a reason why parents love "The Ransom of Red Chief" ;)

She is obviously having trouble not being the center of attention, which is something you are going to need to work on before that new one arrives!

Survival. This phase won't last long. Just long enough for you to learn coping skills for handling it. Then she will outgrow it and you will have to deal with a whole 'nother phase. Parenting: one step forward, 2 steps back.

And we're the ones doing it backwards, in high heels. :)

Repeat the following phrase as needed: "This too shall pass." Because, really it will, promise. Then she'll be on to some other frustrating, annoying, oh I mean, challenging and fun! ;) behavior. Plus take heart, your baby isn't due for another 4-5 months, and at this age, that's a HUGE difference. There's a big jump in maturity between almost 3, and 3 and a few months.

Other ideas for now... A little while before big brother comes home, start talkin' it up, "Big brother will be home soon, isn't that exciting! I bet he's going to be so happy to see you!" If there's anything you do with/for him, involve her. For instance, if he eats an after school snack, let her help prepare it, and then talk about how you all can eat it together. Or, if you help him w/homework, get out a coloring book and crayons and talk about how they are going to do "homework" together.

HTH a little! :)
