The Pain and the Great One!

Does anyone recognize this post title?  When my children were young, we used to read a book by, I believe, Judy Blume.  The story was about a first born girl and her younger brother.  It was a tongue in cheek story about birth order, and how it affects personailties in siblings (well, that is not exactly what it is about, just my spin on it!).  My kids loved the book because it fit their personalities and relationship to a "t".  The older daughter was perfect in every way (wink, wink), and didn't mind reminding the entire family that she was.  The little brother was the "pain".  He did lots of annoying things, especially to his "perfect" sister.  Well, Maddie and Mason have a little bit of the same kind of relationship going on.  These photos, taken during our week at Gulf Shores really illustrate what I mean.  Maddie looks almost angelic with her braids and Mason. . .  well, could he look any more devilish?  They say that history repeats itself, and in this case, I am convinced that is right!
