Ah, that got you, didn’t it? I can quite categorically reassure you that there is no sister on the cards, baby or otherwise, but a conversation with my daughter over the summer made me grin. We met some children to play with while we were on holiday in France. Each of the chosen friends had brothers and sisters, with varying degrees of likeability, according to age and interestws. We got to talking about whether GG and the Bug are enough for each other, or if things would be better with an extra sibling, of either variety. GG was very firm in her view:
GG: I want a little sister. She has to be younger than me.
Me: But you’d soon be annoyed by a baby sister coming in and out of your room, using your things.
GG: No I wouldn’t! I could put make-up and nail polish on her. And she’d like it! The Bug hates it when I do his hair and make-up!
No wonder they’ve been bickering a lot this holiday!
