Ada is a typical little sister, meaning she is really good at getting her big brother in trouble. Ada and her brother quarrel like most siblings. They fight over the tv. They fight over who gets more room in the back seat of the car. They fight over the last cookies in the cupboard, who gets to sit next to mom at the dinner table, whose turn it is to wash dishes, and so on. But Ada has an advantage in these fights. She has the “cute factor”. When an argument ensues, her older brother is defiant and mad, but Ada remains calm and smiles sweetly, allowing the blame to consequently fall on her brother. Sometimes
when she’s bored, she’ll approach her big brother, who is minding his own business, and let out a piercing scream. When her mom comes running, she’ll point a finger at her brother and exclaim, “He hit me”. While her brother is being dragged off for punishment, Ada just smiles and giggles quietly.
