Friday Flash: Big Sister

This is another attempt at a dialogue only piece. It’s a drabble, but that’s entirely accidental. 😉

“Mom? Did you bring – ohh look! He’s so tiny.”

“All babies are. You want dinner?”

“I want to hold him. Can I hold him? Please?”

“Sure. Sit first. Don’t sit on the edge of the sofa, sit back completely. Good girl. Here, support his head like this. Put your arm under him. Yes, like that.”

“Ohhh Mom! He’s looking at me. He’s got eyes like Dad. Oh oh oh he’s holding my finger. His fingers are tiny.”

“You’re his big sister. He likes you.”

“I like being the big sister. Why’s he making that sound? Mom! He peed on me!”
