It all starts when everyone is watching a designing show, except for Kimi. Kimi tells them she doesn't want to watch it, so she won't. Lil is puzzled by Kimi's very odd behavior, as Chuckie says he really knows Kimi and she's in love with the show. Later at school, Kimi is suspended for writing an inappropriate poem in class, and Chuckie has to walk her home as she won't tell Mr. Pangborn any information about her poem. Chuckie wonders if he needs to look out for his little sister more, as he knows something is bothering her. Then Kimi yells at the mailman telling him not to deliver mail if it isn't for her, making him scared. Now, Chuckie is just surprised by his little sister. Finally, Chas and Kira tell the gang they are going to their new dancing studio to practice. This leaves Angelica to babysit. Tommy finds a way to trick Angelica into distracting Kimi. Chuckie and the others then decide to change Kimi's room. When Kimi comes home, she hates her room. Then Kimi tells Chuckie what was bothering her: Her father forgot her present for the Japanese holiday, "Children's Day." Then she figures out she has a present, a new baby sister!
