Brotherly Love

Poor Ingrid-in-the-middle has been copping it from both sides, or brothers. She had already declared that "If the next baby is a boy I'm going to live with the Dennis' ". The Dennis family have four daughters.
On George's 3rd birthday he received a plastic dinosaur set. I can't remember the exact sequence of events, but somehow, later that day George used the stegosaurus as weapon against his younger sister. The spiky creature had perfect aim and landed exactly on the bridge of the victims nose drawing an instant dramatic rush of blood. I do remember George didn't even wait to be disciplined, and voluntarily scampered off to the naughty spot. To this day Ingrid has a scar on the bridge of her nose.
This morning we were all having a cuddle in bed. In a jealous act Arthur turned and bit poor Ingrid!! Where? On the snoz of course. It wasn't until later in the day that we realised that her snout was swollen and sporting a set of purple tooth marks. Ah. Brotherly love....
