Following our friends’ advice, we bought Angelina a Barbie doll and said it was a present from her newborn brother. This was supposed to be a good method against sibling rivalry.
Angelina opened the present and was delighted. “Wow,” she exclaimed, “how did baby brother know what I like?” The plan worked!
The next day, Grandma asked, “How come your brother had money to buy you a present?”
“Oh,” Angelina answered, “I guess Mummy bought it and told me it was from brother.”
That marked the end of another fairy tale, after Santa Claus and Tooth Fairy.
