Demanding Diva

Since the day Jake was born he has been bossed around by either his big sister or his twin sister so when he heard he was going to be a big brother at the age of five the very first thing out of his mouth was "I hope it's a boy" and the next was "Good! Someone for me to finally boss around."
It's a Girl!
Poor Jake took it all in stride and he did really love the idea of being a big brother, this was finally his big chance to be the boss of someone younger then him.
That is until little sister arrived and gave that undeniable look he had seen many, many times before, that look that told Jake right off the bat that she was going to be trouble with a capital "T".
He was right, little sis has bossed Jake from the time she found her voice to this day, even though she is much smaller and five years younger.
She used even sit in her room and scream his name and then start some sort of evil countdown of "Waiting, Waiting, Waiting" until he arrived. Talk about demanding, it was always "do this", "do that", "help me with this"...etc..
Day to dawn, morning to night, pitch black to daylight his little sister was always demanding something.

Jake understands now that the demanding divas in his life will always boss him no matter their age or even their size.


  1. It's a hard lesson us boys all learn...


  2. Haha! Brilliant and so warming! Being a big brother to a younger sister is quite magical though. :)

  5. Jake is no doubt going to make some lucky girl a great husband someday. He's going to totally understand women.

  6. poor Jake. He must be too nice to boss anyone else around. He didn't have to come running either. Sounds like a sweetheart.
    Happy D Day!
