Okay, this is weird. I think my daughter's getting tired of having a sister.
Possibly because she's realized this isn't an amazing creature; it's a kid, like her, who happens not to speak much English.
Possibly because we've going many places we wouldn't go if it was just her. Why her, not me?
Possibly because she's just tired - of her, the heat, you name it.
Whatever the cause, the bloom is, I think, off the rose. Not to say it won't reflower when she is just about to leave -- my wife thinks the daughter will be sad. But she also thinks she'll be quietly relieved. Normality.
But right this minute....
