Kim is excitedly awaiting the impending arrival of her new adopted baby brother. However, the other kids' excitement for her accidentally causes Kristen to feel left out, because unlike the others, she's an only child. The other kids quickly point out to her the positives of being an only child and Barney makes certain that she understands that every family (including her own family) is unique in their own special way.

- This episode has numerous similarities with the Season 1 classic My Family's Just Right for Me. Most notably, Kristen's family was exactly the same as Kathy's family was, as both of them only live with their mother and grandmother, they are the only child in their respective families, and both feel sad when they find that they are the only ones in the group that do not have any siblings.
- In the Baniwa Chingudeul adaptation of this episode, Sun Jeung can be seen wearing socks that have the Sesame Street logo and the character Bert printed on them. In addition, he's wearing pajamas with Snoopy on them. This is likely due to less strict copyright laws in South Korea (compared to the US). In addition, Seo Young celebrates her birthday in the first part of the episode.
