Big Brother Caillou (#117)

Caillou learns the importance of being a big brother today. Caillou remembers when this big brother thing first started -- he was just two and a half. Everyone was so excited when his baby sister Rosie first came home -- everyone but Caillou, who felt left out until he got to help Daddy change Rosie's diaper. He soon realized that his new role as a big brother was important. Rexy, who is "sort-of" a big brother to Didi, is at a loss for words when she asks his opinion on her painting. He doesn't want to hurt her feelings, but Teddy advises him to just be honest. Rexy soon finds out that the truth (that the painting looked like a big green blob) was exactly what Didi was going for. Later on, Caillou gets to exercise his big brother skills when Mommy is gone for the day and he has to help Daddy with the daily routine. [28 minutes] Closed Captioning
