Siblings and Peacemaking

Big Brother recently became interested in Pokemon cards.  Tonight he set up the game to play with Hubby, who meanwhile was working to build a fire.

Of course curious Sister came over to check things out and "messed up the cards."  He was furious.  Tempers flared.

I called her back into the room where I was nursing Baby Brother and tried to get her to paint her house.  She decided that sounded like a fun thing to do and wanted her big brother to join in the fun.  Imploring him somewhat emphatically, she said, "Paint house with me?!"  

Once more even louder, "  PAINT HOUSE WITH ME!!"

I told her that she should use a kind tone of voice when she asked him.

She walked into the living room and in the sweetest voice said of her own accord, "Bruder, I sorry your cards.  Will you paint house wiff me?"

Blessed are the peacemakers.
