Sibling Rivalry

I guess technically to have true sibling rivalry you need two participants.

at this point Charlie doesn't realize what's going on.

he's just going about doing his thing
(which is picking up every small thing on the floor and trying to eat it)


 So how did this sweet girl



turn into this?

We've been trying to do little outings in between Charlie's nap times.
And since our mall partially burnt down, that left one other place.

It's called 'The Fountains' and true to it's name,
it has a big fountain at the center that comes
complete with a water show timed to music. 
(I know, it's like our own mini Bellagio)

I brought my camera with the hopes of getting some good sibling shots
but the eldest sibling was just not havin' it.

Instead it was full me yelling things like...

Hey guys - Claire, Charlie - Look at Momma!
Yoo-Hoo - over here - HEY!!!


GENTLE! Do NOT knock him down!



STOP BLOCKING HIM!!!
He's allowed to walk around!


no words
{her eyes say it all}

But even though Claire is still working on being a super great big sister,
she still has her moments of kindness...

like when she tried to help Charlie eat breakfast all by herself.

I think that getting pecked to death by chickens would be easier than taking a good photograph of any child under 8, let alone 2 children. So frustrating… Allergy Mum - http://allergymum.blogspot.com/
