It's Hard - A Snippet

FlapJilly told her mommy that Being A Big Sister Is Hard.

It was late. Very late for an almost-4-year-old to be awake. Mommy and Giblet were cozy in the comfy chair.  The Big Sister was in the doorway.

It was a whisper, not a shout.  It was a statement of fact, not a complaint. 

Because she has The Best Mommy On The Planet, her statement was met with acceptance and love.  Yes, it's hard right now, and you are doing Such A Good Job.  It is different and challenging and Mommy understands.  Yes, it will get better.  Yes, now he's not much more than a blob of protoplasm we cart from one place to another, but soon we'll get to enjoy more than the fact that he opened his eyes and looked at you.  Soon he'll play with you All The Time.  Won't that be FUN!?!?!

And, YES, you can get up in the chair and snuggle, getting all the hugs and kisses in the land.

And so, she did.
