Okay, if my son ever grows up and decides to read his mom's old blog posts, he is going to get a complex. My precious girl has had more than her fair share of mentions. And, we all know how siblings keep track. So, here is a little round up of Thing 2 quotes on the subject of sibling feelings:
After Jordan flawlessly read a picture book to all of us at bedtime, "Terrible, Jordan. Terrible."
DAVID: (kidding around) Joshy, who do you like better, Mommy or Daddy?
JOSHY: Well, first of all, of course, I like myself best. Second, I pick... Jawden.
Josh's teacher overheard him in the hall saying to one of his buddies, "Sometimes, I need a bweak from my sister. I wish I had a bwother."
After Jordan cracked an egg for French Toast, "Terrible, Jordan. You're terrible at cracking eggs. " (Getting the picture here? :)
In bed one night, out of the blue, "Sometimes I hate Jordan and her stupid mustache."
ME: Where did Jordan get a mustache?
JOSH: From Sophie's dad.
Boy, you can't make this stuff up!
Becky and I are struggling to capture these conflicting emotions of sibling love/worship/hate/envy in our picture book, Rescuing Mae. Tomorrow I meet her to work on draft #37. Wish us luck.
