    Younger siblings are such tattle-tales (and I am one of only a brother… excluding our three older stepsisters and two younger stepsisters).

    My roommate is the youngest of six. There isn’t much he enjoys more than telling someone something about someone else that will cause trouble. He tattles to instigate strife.

    Ah yes, the broken toys (mostly baby toys) and outgrown clothes- how to get rid of any of them? A problem I face often. If you so much as threaten to throw out even one of the 405 papers they bring home from school, or a broken toy that’s been under the couch for 4 years, suddenly it’s a masterpiece.

    There are a good thing for younger siblings after all

    So, you are calling a toddler a “b***h”. Don’t you think that’s rather inappropriate, as well as mean-spirited?

    sad part of all of this is that Michael probably wouldn’t have noticed if Liz hadn’t told him all the stuff their mom threw out.

    Elizabeth is angry because Michael was gone so long. That will show him what happens when he’s gone.

    The fact that Elizabeth could rhyme off every single item Ellie threw out is a good warning to other parents….little kiddoes are smarter than you think. Best not to do anything in front of them that you’d regret having them disclose later.

    That said, you also have to watch how you handle the topic of ‘telling on others’ so it still doesn’t prevent them from telling you stuff that may be vital to their personal safety.This is how predators gain their trust…by telling them not to ‘tell’ mom or dad as his ‘actions’ may hurt their feelings.

    It was getting too boring for Elizabeth. She had to start the fireworks.

    “They’ll never notice” is the mantra for all who clean house.

    Better an instigator than no Gator at all…

    My b*tch of an older sister (3 yrs older, now a mother of 4 with no husband, a drunkard, and smokes crack, from what I’m told…) used to break things, and blame me. Me, being the middle child, couldn’t do right, and the blame stuck.

    At least this time Lizzy’s tattle-taling worked in Michael’s favour. Usually they tattle on the sibling to the parent, this time she tattled on the parent to the sibling. Michael should be thankful.
