A funny one

So I was sitting on the couch this evening with Allie on my lap and Clarissa playing at the coffee table in front of me.

Allie leapt forward to grab hold of Mama duck and Clarissa immediately jumped up protectively to snatch her duck back and scold her sister, “Hey! You cannot touch my Mama duck! You didn’t ask for permission!”

It was the typical kind of fight between siblings, except that one of them only babbles excitedly regardless of what has been said.

I told Clarissa gently that maybe she was a little too fierce with her sister, who cannot talk and probably does not understand half of what’s going on.

So she calmed down, turned to look at Allie in the eye, and said gently to her:

“I know you cannot talk, but next time you have to ask, ok?”
