Love, Sophie: Dealing with Little Sisters

Hello Sophie fans!

It’s a miserable Wednesday around here these days. I think you’ve all been introduced to some of my sisters before.  I’m not talking about the old broods that have been talked about over and over again, I’m talking about my younger sisters. Most notably Eden Mouse. She’s young, she’s immature, she’s territorial with her clothing and shoes. Plus, Michelle got in a cute pair of boots and then she stole them from me because “Ohhh, it’s pink! Everything pink is mine!” like that means something. I don’t know where she gets off doing things like that all the time. Little sisters are difficult to live with – so I’ve decided to share some ways that I deal with my younger sisters.

149/365 - So you gotta play the mommy, and I play the kid... - 1/3

  • Be the ‘bigger person’ – figuratively. Michelle is more likely to let me have the new clothes first (which she should anyways…) if I’m nice the others. I don’t know why being nice is a necessity, but it gets me new clothes and she’s more likely to make things for me if I ask (nicely).
  • Hide all their toys. I hide away Eden’s toys so she can’t ask me (or the others) to play dolls with her. I don’t understand why she thinks that I would play with dolls. I’m a model and an occasional blogger – I don’t have time to play with dolls!
  • Send them off on a wild goose chase. Best thing ever. I tell Eden I can’t find something random (that I don’t own) and then get her to help me find it. It keeps her occupied for hours on end and gives me peace of mind and a quiet place to hang around because she’s not yammering on and on about how “great” the colour pink is. There’s only so much one can stand listening to how great pink is and how she’s got another pair of pink boots.


Sophie is a mostly stock Cappuccino Chat that came to live with me in June 2009. She loves shoes, new clothes, playing with her hair, fashion, magazines full of fluff and shopping. She aspires to be a model and would like to model for some of the ‘great’ dolly fashion houses one day.
