I truly have the world's best sisters. I know of a family where all the sisters are total drama queens and either hate each other or hate their parents. Half the family is estranged from one another and they act in mean and spiteful ways.

"I two!" she said with a smirk.

Grandpa's Girl

I'm so cute, and I know it.

Why are people singing to me? Make it stop!

I like to wear my swimming suit on top of my clothes.

Let's go play in the dirt!

Mmm. What is this tasty thing heretofore unknown to me?

It's soy ice cream!!
