    What’s all the sympathy for the girl? Middle child syndrome my aunt Harriot ! She’s a brat. She is probably still a brat. I was the youngest in my family. Can you tell I still have some issues????!!!!

    • Da Judge says:

      It is all in the nature of family karma and balance, a little chaos feeds the forces of order, and a little fist full of hair to plug the ears with.

  2. paulapoo says:

    That’s why the little boy in “The Space Between” photo sat so far away.

  3. emm says:

    anyone see ‘the bad seed’?? i bet this girl plays a mean ‘claire de lune’…

  4. rwblake says:

    What is funny is the look on the girls face and positioning. It is like, I am not really grabbing my brothers hair. I am the little angel girl.

  5. Slookie says:

    I’m going to be laughing for days.

  6. Dave says:

    Females … so physically aggressive …

  7. jnc51247 says:

    It’s as if the older brother is saying, “I tried to warn you about what she was like, man!”

  8. Gina says:

    For some reason this made me laugh till I almost peed

  9. Just my opinion says:

    Good comment Steph! I love when people reference Marney!

  10. laura says:

    this could just be my cousin!

  11. face lift says:

    This is something worth keeping for. She has an attitude. How cute!

  12. cg says:

    This is EXACTLY the kind of picture that makes this site so awkwardly awesome.

  13. dsto says:

    Just your typical arranged marriage….

  14. JaneC says:

    Wow. That little girl could be my twin–in personality as well as appearance. If I had any brothers, I’m sure that there would be a picture exactly like this in my parents’ family album.
    “Hold still for the picture, little brother. See, Mommy, I’m the good one!”

  15. Amie says:

    This little girl is the H*IC! I love it.

  16. Heidi says:

    She’s just trying to be helpful by pulling him into the proper position (between her and her older brother). heeheehee. ;)

  17. To me it looks like the little dude is trying to bust out a positively righteous dance solo and his sister just got jealous. Can’t blame her. He’s totally stealing the spotlight.

  18. Lori says:

    I can very much see my daughter doing this as she gets older…except to her older brother lol

  19. jenniep says:

    watch me pull a rabbit out of…………..oh drat……….its billy………..

  20. Katie says:

    I love the expression on the older boys face! “Seriously??”

  21. grimey says:

    Come on…how can she be blamed for this because she’s “only a girl” ?

  22. Steph says:

    It’s a young Marney doling out her brand of punishment for little brother daring to wear a red vest with small, white buttons when she could not have been more clear, or serious, that he was only to wear black, regulation size buttons!

  23. stephanie says:

    The older brother is like WTH are you doing? She is like ‘who me?’ with a fistfull of lil bro’s hair!!!! poor kid!

  24. Maya B says:

    The middle child and the only girl…she’s learned how to take care of herself!

  25. Don says:

    “Who says only guys can be televangelists?” little Julie asked. When Pastor Bill stepped of the stage to get some water she saw her chance. Cathedral Temple would never be the same.

  26. hcw80 says:

    As the youngest child in a large family, all I can say it the purpose of older siblings is to toughen you up and make sure you have hand-me-downs. Proof positive here.

  27. NeonKoi says:

    I think the older kid is holding his hands out saying, “It wasn’t me!”

  28. Amber says:

    OMGosh, the title of that got me laughing, “Ignore me doing this.” HA HA HA Good one.

  29. Amice says:

    The Bad Seed.

  30. Etraking says:

    She’s not smiling, she’s actually clenching her teeth to show the effort she’s putting at pulling the small boy’s hair… OUCH!!!

  31. sauguslady says:

    Could she be trying to keep him from sitting/falling down?

  32. nikki says:

    That is so funny!!! We have a christmas picture of me pinching my little brothers back because he wouldn’t smile! brings back good memories LOL

  33. Tan says:

    Come on…you know we’ve all wanted to do this to a sibling ;)=

  34. Typingfool says:

    LOL! The first thing I thought of was the little girl in the movie “The Bad Seed”. LOL! My brother always had a crew cut, never could pull his hair. Darn it!

  35. 12gager says:

    I love that the older brother is making sure that his hands are no where near his younger brother so that he can’t get blamed.

  36. Richard Davies says:

    I’m just checking if he’s wearing a wig!

  37. orangeTNman says:

    this pic so reminds me of my 3 kids….except my oldest is a girl….but this is exactly the way they act!!

  38. Rosi G. says:

    She was probably just trying to hold the bratty kid’s head steady for the picture. LOL my older kids tend to pull on their little brother’s earlobe so he can stay still. HA!

    • Da Judge says:

      Exactly – she is trying to hold his head forward for the camera to make Mom and Dad happy. The bratty toddler was already pitching the fit backwards toward big brother. No one ever understands the benevolent judgment and even hand of the honorable middle child except for another middle child…

      • Nic says:

        So true. This is exactly what I thought (and I’m a middle child). Everyone said she’d pulling his hair! I thought no, he was throwing a fit and the mom asked her to keep him still and that’s what she did. That’s what the older brother has an “What’d you expect” look on his face.

  39. Gina says:

    This might be my favorite AFP ever!

  40. Han says:

    Haha, glad to know I’m not the only one who has a photo like that. I bet I’m not the only person who’ll say that, either!

  41. stephanie says:

    big brother says to little brother if you would just be still and smile like mom says sister will stop hurting you, I have told you this 100 times . . .

  42. Marie says:

    Aww, poor little guy. But, as is always the case, the day eventually came when he caught up to her in size and could defend himself, and then BOY HOWDY she didn’t mess with him again!

  43. Sherm says:

    Is it just me or does the oldest kid look like his head is way to big for his body?

  44. Katie C. says:

    She looks so pleased with herself. And the big brother is looking down at the little one as if to say “What the hell are you screaming for?”

    • Cee says:

      I agree! I wonder if that little guy is a bit of a trouble maker for his older siblings? I’m sure that they’re all best friends now.

    • Jess says:

      I actually lol’ed when I read that! If you look at his hands, they’re out in the ‘What?’ position. I think you’ve hit the nail on the head with this caption LM*O

    • Bob A. says:

      I think he is saying, “What the heck do you expect me to do about it? I’m probably next!”

    • Nick says:

      that’s what cracked me. He’s got his hands out as if to say, “If you would just hold still and look at the camera all ready, she wouldn’t have to do this.”

  45. bced says:

    hahaha – reminds me of me! I’ve got one of me slapping my little brother in the face. Gotta love the old days before digital cameras.

  46. Novy says:

    She makes me think of Angelica Pickles.

  47. Anna says:

    ahh, the joys of being a middle child.

  48. Mamacakes says:

    LOL She looks like my niece!

  49. Just here says:

    Today, the kid is president of the hair club for men.
