Big Sister teaches Baby Sis

Whenever E, is in the mood (more and more frequently) she shows Baby L. how we do things around a house, how she should eat with a spoon or drink with a straw. Baby Sis always has a great time whenever her Big Sister pays a close attention to her.

Of course, we do it in both languages. It’s great practice for E. and learning opportunity for L.

“Teaching” started when L. was about 6 months old. With flashcards and books:

Later on E. enjoyed feeding Baby Sis to show how to use a spoon.

After a few months now Baby Sis can do it all by herself.

E. is explaining Baby Sis how to unload the dishwasher.

It’s still housework time. Loading the washing-machine.

“These are your tights” – said E. and put them in the washing-machine. Then L. gave her a purple onesie.20170307_121027.jpg

It’s baby L.’s privilege to push the start button.

Drinking with a straw is not a problem if you can watch your Big Sister how to do it.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not all sunshine and lollipops. There are quite a lot of screaming, and some hitting, pinching, scratching when the girls get frustrated in some tense situations. But it’s getting better and better. Now I (and E. too) see the light at the end of the tunnel. All in all, it’s great to have a Big Sister, as well as a Baby Sis.
