Hmm… wonder what she’s thinking? Aunt Dorothy, that is! Is she pleased to have a new baby brother?

Out for a stroll... grandma pearson, aunt dorothy and my father in the baby carriage

So sorry baby brother…

But, I don’t like you much!
You fuss, you cry, you poop, you took mother away from our tea party today.

Besides that, you’re a boy and I really really wanted a baby sister.

‘Stop fussing with my hair!’
Mother says to ask you to forgive me
for thinking such bad thoughts and saying them aloud.

This is just to say
that I am so sorry baby brother
for not liking you so much and
wishing you away.

Forgive me.

I suppose when you’re old enough I’ll have to learn
how to play in the dirty dirt and you
won’t like my dolls whatsoever.

And here she is. Aunt Dorothy, all grown up and quite the young lady!

Guess I’m being somewhat presumptuous in regards to Aunt Dorothy and her ‘thoughts’ on the matter of new baby brothers. I only had my own feelings to fall back on when I became the older sister to a new baby brother. Should I be ashamed of myself for such thoughts? Perhaps! By the way, at this writing Aunt Dorothy is still with us at the age of 98.

 
 

Oh my! What's he done now?

Oh my!… “What’d I do now?”

So there he is… the culprit of whom I speak and the invader of my “cushy” life at home with Mom and Dad. Guess he was, after all, kinda cute and that alone saved his skin on many an occasion. Dear brother Jim…. while we had our ups and downs during childhood, so glad we became friends when all grown up!

Your big sis….
Love,
Julie
