The Busy Life of a Big Sister

 Well, it's been too long again, but life as a big sister is a lot busier than you might think.

You have to try to make Lois laugh all day with fingers that aren't as coordinated as you would like them to be. You never know if you're going to poke her eye, her ear, or pick her nose when really you're just trying to touch her chin.

You have to watch your favorite cartoon, "Daniel, Daniel," when Lois is sleeping. Or, call as many people as you can on Skype. 

You have to go outside for walks. And when Mom wants to take a picture, you have to shrug your shoulders and say "I don't know!" even though you know that all Mom really wants you to do is smile. Believe me, it's more funny when I do it in real life.

And, you have to bake imaginary cookies and cook popcorn with Annie in your matching aprons.

When Lois wakes up again, you have to get back to making her smile. She's getting really good at it, but sometimes I'd rather just snort like a pig. 

And when it snows, which has only happened once (today) since we moved here, you have to go outside and build a snowman with Dad.

And then sit on top of it, of course. 

So, sorry it's been so long since I've written. But like I said, life can be pretty darn busy as a big sister.
