In her own words Carmyn speaks her mind about her sister.

Carmyn II



     I thought Tiffany was going to play games with me today. She promised. It’s not fair she gets to do anything she wants. And why can’t I go with her when she goes to her friends’ house? I know I am only 8 and she’s 13, but she gets to do neat things. Mom and dad are working so I have to be where ever Tiffany is. She can’t leave me alone.

     It’s not raining today so we could play a game outside or go hiking. I love hiking. Even though it’s hot I know I’ll have to wear my old jeans so I won’t get that poison stuff that makes you itchy. Mom always says I have to be especially careful because it’s allergic to me.

     I hope Tiffany trips and falls over her big feet. Her feet are two times as big as mine. I know I measured her shoes and my feet. Last week we did have fun when we went to grandma’s house. I got to bake cookies while Tiffany watched television. She did come into the kitchen once and moved me so she could help grandma. It just wasn’t fair. I wanted to help grandma by myself. I crossed my arms and sat on the floor. Grandma made Tiffany leave. I got up on my chair and got a bowl ready.  Everything grandma told me to do I did. That’s why the cookies were really good. Grandma told me to mix all the ingredients by hand. I put my two hands in the bowl and mixed everything. I know that’s why the cookies tasted awesome.

     Today Tiffany was on the phone all morning. I wanted to call mom but she wouldn’t let me. I stood over her with my hands on my waist cause she knows I mean business then. I counted to ten real loud. Finally I got to call mom and tell her how mean Tiffany was to me. She wasn’t paying any attention to me. I had to make my bed and fold all the clothes from the dryer. Mom told me to chill out.

From the eyes of a child older siblings can be a curse one moment and a blessing the these two poems you posted exemplify so well. Great writing clear and honestly open.
