The gift.

Sophie came running into the classroom today with a HUGE smile on her face.

"Guess what?" she shouted, out of breath from running the whole way down the hall.

"Good morning, Sophia!"  I said, smiling.  "And I don't know, what?"

"I have the BEST TELLING SHARING EVER!" She said, hopping up and down.

"Wow! Did you win the lottery?" I asked.

"No!" she laughed, shaking her head.

"Are you moving into a fairy princess castle?"  I asked with enthusiasm. clapping my hands together.


"Are you getting a PONY?" I asked.

"No!  No, no, no.  I am getting my brother's IPOD!"

I looked at her.  "Uh-oh."

"Yep!  You know what that means!  My brother was SO BAD!" She said with a huge smile.

"Yikes."  I said, remembering her story during morning meeting not long ago.

"Yep, he was SO, SO BAD and now I get his iPod!   Isn't that the greatest news ever?"   She ran gleefully over to her cubby as I turned to my intern.

"Well, that might be the greatest news for Sophie, but I'm guessing there's more than one person who will not agree, and I think probably his mother might be at top of the list."

We shook our heads and watched her spread the good news.  (Who knew a gift that doesn't require wrapping could cause such joy???)

poor brother, poor mother

The pure glee of a sibling punished is unrivaled.

Glad I am not a grandparent living through that event! Also a bit on the fence about the true value of techie knowledge for them versus the true addictive nature of the devices/computers.

Makes me wonder what brother and sister will be like in 10 years.

That is too funny! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sophie is too funny but I do sympathize with the Mom. I can't seem to comment on some of your posts, is it just me or do others have this problem?

Well that clinches it. I look forward to your stories about her brother next year.

Mom's not damaging that sibling relationship in any way.
