Claire loves Caroline. It is a total joy to see. She coos "so ceeuuuuute" and laughs and insists on giving her endless kisses right on the mouth. When Caroline cries (which is any time she's awake and not being held) Claire says in her best adult voice, "come 'ere...."
Or, if Claire is in the other room and Caroline cries, Claire takes off, as fast as her chubby little legs will carry her, yelling "I coming, Cehline!"
However, she is a bit rough without knowing it. For some reason I think of Ghostbusters, that awful voice at the end growling, "choose the form of your destructor..." and Dan Akroyd thinks of the soft, smiley Stay Puft Marshmallow guy, thinking it could not possibly harm anyone.
Yet, the soft, smiley Stay Puft guy stomps through the streets of New York, destroying everything in its wake with a cute little smile on its face.
Every time Claire climbs up on the couch to begin loving her little sister, I think, "choose the form of your destructor."
