sibling rivalry

July 23, 2008 |  Category:   family life


Can I tell you something funny? Well, like typical siblings, the girls are engaging in equal parts play and equal parts fighting. If you grew up with siblings, you know what I’m talking about because it’s not the bigger scuffles over toys that are tiring, it’s the constant jabbing and poking and taunting, mostly on Mia’s part. It’s like she just can’t resist doing something to Claudine as she passes by. I think C is getting tired of being picked on too now that she can express herself. Not only does she tell us the occurring offense, but she now saids “Mia, Mia” for any little bump, scrape or fall even if Mia is nowhere to be seen. She’s also resorted to pinching her sister back, a rather hilarious attempt at getting back at her since the pinches coming from her little fingers are so dainty. But to further make her point, she’s been saying “pinch”, like a little exclamation point, while going at it, but it’s been coming out sounding like “bitch”. We can’t help but crack up when we hear “bitch! bitch!” after Mia gives a little push or whatever. Hahaha, love toddler mispronunciations. At least she has a good handle on how to say “fork”.

    hahahahahahaha. this post is too funny. i’m glad she has down fork as well! my sister and i had some ups and downs but what always made us laugh when we were learning pronouns “he, she, it we , they” and of course we said “she” and “it” really fast and laughed our faces off ….. however, our parents did not. so laugh now, when they don’t know!
