Lulu Is Getting a Sister


  • It made no sense to Lulu that her mom and her dad were so happy about this baby. Why in the world would they need another child? And why would they want a girl, when they’ve already GOT a girl, namely Lulu, who totally had this girl-in-the-family thing covered?

    And wasn’t her mom always hugging her and saying, in the mushiest tone of voice, “You are the greatest treasure of our life”?

    And wasn’t her dad always hugging her and saying, with this little sob in his voice, “Nothing on earth brings your mother and me more joy”?

    Not to mention all those times her mom and her dad had told her, “Our hearts are filled to the brim with love for you.”

    So how come—if their hearts were filled to the brim—there was room left in their hearts for another kid?

    Lulu didn’t bother asking that question. Instead, arms folded across her chest, and a glittery glare in her eyes, she icily said to her mom and her dad, “Maybe I won’t be talking to you anymore. Maybe I’ll go into my room and never come out. Maybe I’ll hold my breath and keep on holding and holding and holding it till I turn blue. Or maybe I’ll find a new mom and dad who’ll think that I’m so special that they’d never want or need another kid.”

    “WE think you’re special!” said Lulu’s mom.

    “Very!” said Lulu’s dad.

    “Hah!” said Lulu. “Hah!” Then she stomped away.
