The little sister.....

" Far from being the basis of the good society, the family, with it's narrow privacy and tawdry secrets, is the source of all our discontentments" ~ Sir Edmund Leach (1910- 1989)

Little sisters... love them or loathe them they are a part of our lives and we must live with them!!! Mine is all grown up now and rather a pleasure to be around (most of the time haha), but I can guarantee you there were times when this wasn't the case at all!!! She was oh-so-cute and butter wouldn't melt... but she certainly had a devilish side LOL. Like all little siblings I guess...

But now I am seeing it between my own 2 daughters... Denbi is about 3.5yrs older than her little sister Bride and they usually love each other and play really well but.... lately as Biddy is getting herself known much more and is into everything, she has also started to annoy her big sister and interfere with things that she shouldn't!!! Some things I have been able to quickly cover up, but alas there are some others that there is no salvaging :(  Poor Denbi!!!

The aftermath of a secret makeup session!!!
But through all the typical little sister things she has done so far, todays effort really topped it all!!! She located (hunted down more like it) some of Denbi's little girl (ie: trashy) fake makeup.... and "decorated" herself!! Oh what a treat it was for my eyes! Thank goodness she didn't get any of it on any furnishings or walls as that stuff stains like I don't know what! And this particular set was a creamy based type makeup... in HOT PINK!

Note the creamy hot pink lush under her chin... and down her neck!!
I couldn't help but have a little giggle to myself about the state she was in, and didn't even mind so much the small smidgeons she got on her clothing, as I know from past experiences with my boys that it could have been much MUCH worse hahahaha.... and it was kinda cute!!!
Busy "Mummy" with Denbi's baby dolly... AND her pram!! *bless*

So I am glad that my years of protecting things from my curious little sister are gone... these days it is more the other way around in fact! She has all these luscious lovely things that I would just love to pack up and take home for my own hahaha and I am proud to call her one of my closest friends too!

Love you Liz xoxox K
