Partying as big sisters do

To make Small Fry feel extra-special and help soften the blow of soon having to share the spotlight, my mom and sister threw her a lovely big sister party.

That morning, she shunned Mommy’s skirt and dress suggestions and opted instead — fittingly — for her Wonder Woman t-shirt and rainbow striped pants. Perfect.

Laura and Mom really pulled out all the stops: a craft table where Small Fry painted a onesie for baby brother or sister, a Dora edible fruit arrangement, chick- and bunny-shaped finger sandwiches, CUPCAKES, presents.

Such a special little event. And so filled with love.

Hooray for big sister!
