I am the big sister . . .

Picture by proud daddy

I am the big sister,

and I have been receiving propaganda for what seems like a huge part of my life:

months of talk about sharing and cooperation.

What in the world is that!  I am queen of the kid room, am I not?

So there’s to be this new little thing that will

wear my clothes,

sleep in my crib,

play with my toys . . .

and KISS MY DADDY!

No one asked for my vote.

No one asked if I wanted change and progress–Forward!

Oops, sorry.  That is just something I heard on TV.

But holding this thing that somehow escaped Mommy’s tummy,

I’m rethinking my aversion to a live doll.

Her middle name is Sarahn, which is Mongolian for moonlight.

So I’ve got to thinking:  If she is the reflected moon’s light, then I get to be the SUN!!!!

I am big sister, and my middle Mongolian name is smile. 🙂
