On this day in Australia, in 1989, the princess was born. A welcome addition to a family containing 2 young princes. Throughout the pregnancy I’d given thought to how noisy the house would be with a 3rd boy – and how truly outnumbered I’d be!
But they could be mean when it came to her comfort object , a pink pig, which they would hold just out of her reach or hide out of sight..

She devised her own revenge. Wait until parent leaves the room. Let out a terrified screech; enjoy the parent’s return & shouting at boy. Open blue eyes wide in total deniability to the boys’ claims of a setup:
Happy Birthday Princess!!
