The Case of the Missing Train Car
A Simple Addition
“A Simple Addition” is episode #22 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Susan McBride, and originally aired on April 16, 1988.

Summary

In an effort to get attention, young Nicky does whatever he can to get his parents to stop thinking about their soon-to-be-born child.

Plot

The Rogers household is about to add a new member, and Joe and Shelly are happy about the prospect of having a baby. But four-year-old Nicky is only excited about the prospect of getting some new boots. Joe promises Nicky they will go shopping, but before they can, Shelly goes into labor. They all rush to the hospital, and Shannon Rogers comes into the world. Everyone is excited, except Nicky. He'd rather have his boots. Nicky feels even worse when Joe and Shelly bring little Shannon home. Shannon gets Nicky's old baby bed and pacifier (thoroughly sanitized, of course), not to mention most of Joe and Shelly's attention. Nick feels rejected and seeks comfort from the only family member who will still listen to him: Jingle Bells, the dog.

A few hours later, Joe finds Nicky and talks with him about his responsibilities as a new big brother. Joe reassures Nicky that his parents still love him more than ever. Nicky feels better and even gets a little excited about being a big brother. But he still wants his boots. Just then, a package arrives for Nicky from his grandparents, who are missionaries in Brazil. Inside the package is a pair of boots. God knew all along.

Discussion Questions

  1. Why was Nicky upset when he saw Shannon in his old baby bed?
  2. Have you ever felt like Nicky?
  3. If so, explain how.
  4. Joe told Nicky, "Not even Mommy and I can love you more than God does."
  5. Do you think that's true?
  6. Name some ways your parents shows that they love you.
  7. Name some ways God shows that He loves you.
