I just want to reiterate that you are loved by your siblings. Dearly, sincerely, aggressively loved. And here’s some evidences:
– your sister colored on your precious newborn scalp with permanent purple marker. No doubt as a way to brand you as hers.
-she also shares her food with you. Including cheese puffs and ice cream. And if you knew how much she loved her food, this is a big deal.
-most mornings you awake to 3 pudgy little faces and 6 grubby little hands nudging you awake. And though incapable of morning voices, they really are trying to be gentle.
-the boys insist that you play in the basement with them. And they cover you up if it’s too cold.
-Middle Man often stands guard while you nap, refusing to leave the room until you’re asleep.
-Just tonight, they let you in on their bedtime show. Which involved Daddy banging the snare drum in the pitch-dark while Big Brother operated the flashlight-turned-strobe-light and the 2 “Middles” danced themselves into a sweaty frenzy.
-And I’m sure the final evidence will be when they offer to pay your full therapy bill one day!
