In our house the oldest sibling could be called, The Big Boss. She’s not as big as Mom, of course, but, whether the younger three sisters like it or not, they toe her line.
Heaven forbid you mess with The Big Boss (or TBB’s stuff), you see, she will come after you. And once she is after you there is only one place to go, The Biggest (and nicer) Boss of all, i.e. Moi. Somehow, I transform into “base.” TBB can’t touch you if you are attached to the “base,” or at least, she gets in trouble if she does; which is almost as good.
There is usually a lot of chasing around the house and quite a bit of squealing, “Mommy! Mommy!” and then suddenly I am body slammed by a little person in full retreat from The Big Boss who is on a rampage, usually over somebody touching her stuff.
Horrors. I know.
After an incident this morning consisting of a chase, a squeal and a body slam into “base,” the littlest drew this picture on a napkin moments before leaving for school:
It is a picture of her biggest sister, The Big Boss, with “clazy hair” (sic).
“I x-ed her out,” she said.
There is some vicious emotion expressed on this napkin. You don’t want to mess with this little peanut, she can hold her own. Especially when peaking out from the relative safety of her mother’s knees.
It’s best to keep on her good side, otherwise, she will X You Out.
“Though she be but little, she is fierce!”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
You don’t want to mess with them, they’re very expressive.
