It was taking some time, so Big G and The Middle Child wandered off down the path a moment. Seconds later they come strolling back, The Middle Child's arm lucked into Big G's elbow, she with a big leaf ornamenting her hair and he with his top lip scrunched up to support a twig, acting as a mustache. They then adopted accents:
"Would you care for a lemonade, Monsieur?"
"Why, yes, certainly!"
Last But Not Least was caught red handed trying to take coins from The Middle Child's piggy bank. Naturally, a riot ensued and came to a close with LBNL closing herself in her room, crying from shame and embarrassment.
The big kids started to feel badly for her:
"She only did that because she doesn't have any money of her own!"
They decided to cheer her up and quickly constructed a plan. They each chose a few coins from their own money to share with her, and wrapped it in pretty boxes. They made her cards: Happy Sad Day! They then set about to reconstruct the living room into an amusement park- one couch became a "bouncer," the other a fort with a slide into cushions. They then called her down to her little party.
You have never seen a happier little girl! Or a prouder Mama :)
