Consequences and Contrition

On the other hand, it's not all a bed of roses, and sometimes by Golly (if we're still allowed to say that) Eloise just simply doesn't know her own strength or else just makes a basic mistake in failing to consider even the most basically obvious of consequences; you know, like snatching things that are obviously at that moment important, or giving little pushes that aren't so little.

Sometimes they end in tears. And sometimes even a smattering of contrition.

Not Going So Terribly Badly

So all in all it's not going so terribly badly, what with Eloise having the maturity not to duff up her little sister and all that, and what with Lyra figuratively worshipping the ground upon which her sister lightly treads; sometimes on the not entirely rare occasion that Eloise needs to woken, Lyra can be despatched with order and she will wander into Eloise's room, climb up onto her bed and gently waken her with kisses and the technique of jumping up and down upon her with a "Hello Elowee" sometimes and a chuckle whereupon Eloise will invariably announce that she's not ready to get up just yet and can the baby please be forcibly removed until she is.
