Being little can be so hard sometimes. You can't open the refrigerator to get your own snack, you can't reach the sink to wash your own hands, and you can't go outside all by yourself. But most of all, it's hard to be little when you realize that your sister can do something you can't. Like whistle.
Poor little Ella was trying so hard to whistle like a bird, pursing her lips and blowing with all her might. No matter how hard she tried, all that came out was a slobbery wet sound. She was very frustrated.
Naturally, being a big sister, Annabel started whistling to show Ella how.
Ella stood there for a minute, watching and listening. Suddenly she scrunched up her little face and started crying "Mama! Mama! Annabel stole my whistle! She has my whistle, right in her mouth!"
She didn't understand why I didn't make Annabel give it back.
