Daniel Tiger and Dad Tiger have just picked up groceries for dinner and stop on the way home when they see O the Owl and Katerina Kittycat playing outside the treehouse. Daniel feels left out when he realizes that O and Katerina have been playing ladybugs together all day.

Dad Tiger reminds Daniel that it's okay to feel sad sometimes and shares a sad song that he likes to sing sometimes. Outside his house, Daniel pretends that everything around him is singing the sad song with him.

Inside the house, Mom Tiger has been working on dinner. Daniel and Dad Tiger wash up and help make a salad while they talk about seeing O the Owl and Katerina Kittycat. Still feeling sad, Daniel is encouraged by his mom with a song and a hug.
