sibling conversations

big sister, age 5 sharing with little brother, age 2 :: Mama listening in ::

brother: 'I like Mary!' {Mama is unsure as to how this thought came about}

sister: 'Do you even know who Mary is?? There are two Marys and it's important to know who they are!!' {again, Mama is unsure as to why the need to speak so emphatically}

'Two Marys?" {holding up two fingers}

'Yes. One is Jesus' mother Mary and the other is from Mary & Martha. That's what I mean by two Marys'.

{pause, pause....more pause from little brother}

'I like MARTHA!!'

Disappointed look and shaking of the head from big sister, who also exhales loudly.

Conversation over.
