Once upon a time there was a little girl named Kimberly who had two brothers. They were her best friends, and still are. But she really, really wanted a little sister.
Finally when she was nine years old, her wish came true and her baby sister Natalie was born. Kimberly and Natalie became best friends, too.
After Natalie came three baby brothers. The girls were outnumbered five to two.
Natalie loved her baby brothers, but she really, really wanted a little sister. Finally when she was nine years old, her wish came true and her baby sister Julia was born. Then another baby sister, Violet, was born. And Kimberly and Natalie were pretty excited about that. Because there are some things that you can do with sisters that you just can’t do with brothers. Like paint toenails, and dress up as princesses, and take pictures in the sunflowers.
