I always hoped that my children would love and protect each other, but I've come to accept that most siblings simply can't resist picking on and competing with each other.
Katie was making a video of herself (we have millions of videos Katie has made of herself - and pictures too!) which was amusing enough in itself but then you hear Ben and Emily arguing in the background because Ben caught Emily taking a bite of a brownie which was made with real butter instead of the dairy free version I usually make.
For those of you who are immediately thinking how mean I am to make brownies that Emily wouldn't be allowed to eat, I didn't make them, Ben's girlfriend did because they wanted to cook together and he made a chicken casserole and she made brownies and I wonder if they were imagining that's what it would be like to be married because that's what I did when I made hot dogs for my college boyfriend and I thought it would be so much fun to cook for my husband one day and then when I'd been married for not too long, I realized that cooking every single day isn't a bit charming the way you think it is when you're playing house by making hot dogs in college.
Wait..... I think this post was supposed to be about the video. So here it is:
If you listen closely, you can hear Ben and Emily arguing in the background about her taking a brownie and he finally tells her he hopes she dies of eczema.
That's sibling love for you.
