Big Sister Coats Brother With Diaper Cream -- In All the Wrong Places (VIDEO)


LOG in troubleBefore I had kids, I always assumed that big sisters would be sort of sweet to their little brothers (yes, I am an only child who clearly didn't know any better). Why? I guess I sort of figured that the older girl/younger boy dynamic would sidestep most of the potential jealousy issues -- Hey, that's my sweater!! Stop borrowing my makeup without asking!! -- leaving just a symbiotic, semi-maternal meeting of sibling minds. HAHAHAHAHA!! Years later, joke's on me!! As the mom of a now 12-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy, I've learned how truly, devastatingly wrong I was: Big sisters are devious, sneaky mad scientists of sorts who live to ruthlessly experiment on their gullible, adoring little brothers.

Case in point: This darling duo, consisting of one very mischievous moppet wearing a pair of ambiguous animal ears and one very confused/affable cutie pie covered in a thick layer of generously applied diaper rash cream. You know, the kind of cream designed to be super water-resistant? Which means cleaning this poor kid up was some kind of fun!!!]

Oh my god. Just watch:


Now, I'm not entirely sure what big sister here is trying to say by way of explanation (something about bacon?!), but that hardly matters. What matters is this little boy is in for a lifetime of messy makeovers ... so it's a good thing he's smiling!

Do you know any big sisters who like to torture their little brothers?

Right here!  My brother is 5 years younger than me and lets just saying, growing up I was kind of an evil genius.  I once convinced my brother that if I cleaned up anything that smelled bad, I would get really sick and pass out, and that my parents didn't like talking about it so he could never tell them.  He would pay me back by spying on me, following me around and being an annoying little brother.  I was horrible, but I promise we're super close now. :)


Too cute...I'm the youngest and I do not have any brothers---I miss all the fun :(

BTW, she said, "I'm pretending this to be sunscream (sunscreen)."

My younger brother and I are 6 years apart and I do remember how sneaky i was with him. I now have a 5 yo daughter and I'm due in less than 2 weeks with a boy......this just reminded me what I'm in for.

Hee hee! I don't know how mom kept a straight face and scolded the little girl. I probably would have laughed because it is funny! :-) Kids do the darndest things! LOL!
