For the past two nights we have all gathered into the living room as a family to watch Justin Bieber’s World Tour on tv. Believe me, that’s not something we would normally do, but our favourite little guest appears to have something called Bieber Fever. Little Miss Fancy tried to deny it at first…but the truth came out as the show began and she started spouting off miscellaneous facts about the teen idol. We watched in amusement while she bounced up and down on the couch with excitement, singing along and pulling out a dance move or two. She was pretty cute through the whole thing!
Having an 11 year old girl around has been fun, helpful and at times a little perplexing. It’s completely different than having a 5 year old girl, it’s definitely given us a valuable glance into the future. We’ve been enjoying our time with Little Miss Fancy a whole lot and it’s amazing that 3 weeks have flown by already. We’re definitely going to miss her when she goes home!!
Not everything has gone smoothly with the visit. My little Princess has been dealing with the big ol’ green eyed monster. One night as I was putting her to bed she started crying out of the blue…”Do you think she (Little Miss Fancy) is better than me?”. I was shocked! Since that night we’ve been working on her feelings of insecurity. The Princess is not just jealous of our new guest, she’s accused me of liking Daddy more than her too. She’s been a lot more clingy lately and she requests to snuggle in “Mummy’s bed” every night until she falls asleep but thankfully, most of the time Princess can get past her jealousy and just enjoy her special time with her cousin.
