Spoiled - by brothers!

This little girl is so spoiled by many.
We take her to the office and everyone goes crazy for McCall.
They give her gifts, lip balm, soda, gum, etc.
I go shopping with her and perfect strangers stop to talk to her and tell her she is so cute.
She takes it all in stride and knows she is the best thing to ever happen to this world.
But of all the places she is spoiled - at home she is the most!
And it's NOT by me!
The boys can't get enough of her.
They do anything she wants them to.
They give her anything she asks for.
They fawn over her and smother her with kisses, hugs and treats.
They sneak things for her.
Sympathize with her when she is told no.
They are ruining her - but I love that they are loving and protecting her.
It won't be long before she annoys them and this is all over.

I do worry that she will go to kindergarten and expect that all the kids - especially the boys - are supposed to love her and give in to all her wishes.
She's in for a big surprise, but not for a few years.
