Making the girls "sister" shirts... help? Naturally Alternative 34 kids; 2 angel babies; Lafayette, Louisiana 5640 posts

So I'm going to make the girls some "sister" shirts. I had the idea to do the baby's with the word "Newbie" and my older daughter's shirt to say "Oldbie"... but I thought maybe to do it "New-bee" and "Old-bee" and have a bee on them as well. Is that silly? Or should I keep it the original way 'cause most people won't get it either way I'm sure.



Also, should I maybe put in smaller letters "Big sister" and "Little sister" or just leave it Oldbie/newbie?

I get "newbie," but why "oldbie"? That just seems weird to me lol. I like the bee idea, though, if you're dead set on "oldbie."

Well someone who's been a while for a while (on a site or a game etc) is usually called an Oldbie... and since my daughter's the older sister, she's almost 4, she's an "Oldbie".



That was my line of thought at least haha
