Squeeze Every Last Penny

Nothing is given to a younger sibling. For seven years I was the youngest of three siblings and I scrapped for everything. One of the major resources I had to jostle for was space. Whether on a couch or in a car, I had to find a way to squeeze myself a spot where my brother and sister insisted there was no room.

Penny has mastered the art of the younger-sibling squeeze

Squirming her way into a spot on the couch or the futon is one thing, but Penny recently demonstrated no spot is too small for her to shimmy her way into.

This one foot by two foot sunspot barely fit Eko, but Penny remained undeterred

First she nudged Eko over

Then comfortably settled in to bask in a few glorious inches of sun

Eko knew his options were to either start a fight or just let the nosy little punk share with him

And like an experienced older sibling, Eko opted to share. Not without a few grumbles of course

There’s no room? Regardless of species, there’s no such thing when you’re a younger sibling!

  1. I just discovered this blog (suggested by BlogLovin) and I LOVE it already. We have a dog, Zoey, who does this but I’m the target. She’ll jump up and manages to squeeze everyone away from me and settles down into my lap or on my side. I would make her wait her turn, but she gives me that look and a kiss and my heart melts. She’s spoiled in all the right ways.
