We are all bored. We switched middle names again. We constantly tire of our old ones and switch. Now I am Sophie Claire Everest Mesk. Kit is Kitrina Eloise Genevieve Mesk, Josefina is Josefina Dahlia Mesk (technically she came up with this before going to the doll hospital), and Ruthie is Ruth Ann Monday Mesk. Actaully, she didn't switch names or anything, because she was born on a Monday so her mum named her Monday.
Mum is at it again. She's plotting another girl. I say, "NO!" and she says, "I know, I know. But what about twins?" Yes. She wants twins named Monday and Luna (though Ruthie claims to hate her name, she got a tad defensive then). They would be #22's. She would get their ears pierced and get them little heart earrings. Monday would be bossy, but really nice (I said, "Why Bossy? Everyone here is bossy but ME!") and Luna would be nice and quiet, and open to compromises (sounds like a kindred spirit to me!). Or she'd get Ivy. And name her Ivy, haha. But Where would they sleep? Mum says that we're getting a big shelf for all of her books, and she'd donate a shelf to us. It could be another bedroom, she said. No, that wouldn't work, because it's too FAR from our house. Who wants to trek, like, 2 metres to get to bed? Not me, and surely not Monday or Luna or Ivy.
Actually, I'm rather warming up to the idea of Monday and Luna. But how old would they be? I don't want another girl being bumped up to being older than me, but I like being the youngest!
Monday and Luna could be 10, but they'd have to be another family. The Mesk's are just fine as is, thank you very much. Hey! They could be Monday and Luna Starr! Uh-oh... Josefina is gonna be mad when she hears mum's plots. She had enough after I came... she practically moped for weeks after Ruth came. But what should we have done? Let our Cousin stay with a Truly Terrible Dad?
