red balloon

who would have thought
a red balloon could cause
such strife between siblings
but it did and we unleashed
our childish fury as we
both claimed the other
as the false storyteller
much to the chagrin of mom
who gave us a stern punishment

  1. I am loving all these red balloons today...in all their different personalities. This one sounds like a troublemaker! ;)

  6. So, whose balloon was it really? Come on, tell the truth. It definitely takes me back to childhood. We three boys fought over every toy that came our way

  8. I agree! This brings back childhood memories. Haha but instead of a balloon, I remember it was the remote we were fighting for.

    It's bad when Mom has to intervene in a squabble between siblings. Everyone who has a brother or sister can relate to this one!

  17. I realized, anything can cause a quarrel among siblings. And I have seen my children quarrel over a red balloon (even when there are other colors available). I am with your mother! :-) :-D
