It was all going well at the pool today until Bentley dumped a bottle of ice cold water all over sleeping Ivy.
The longer Ivy is with us the more amazing I think it is that youngest children can survive in such a hostile environment. Seriously, I know people (particularly people who are the oldest children in their family) who think that youngest children are spoiled, I beg to differ.
I don't think anyone has ever dumped a bottle of ice water on Gwen. All of Gwen's toys had batteries. No one else, particularly no dogs, ever sucked on Gwen's pacifier. Gwen was snuggly tucked in bed for every nap. When Gwen was Bentley's age she went to toddler classes at the community center...Ben just eats rocks and runs around half naked (on good days, usually it is stark naked). Gwen's hair was properly combed, usually with bows and some fancy 'do. Poor poor Ben, and poorer little Ivy.
First children are spoiled. That's all there is to it.
