Growing up, I always wanted an older sister, for as long as I can remember I longed for one. Sometimes, it was because I wanted someone else on my side (my brother and I use to fight something terrible, I have a scar above my left eye from him hitting me with a meter stick), sometimes it was to have someone stick up to my dad for me and my brother. Mostly, though, it was just because I wanted a best "friend". Someone I could share clothes with, talk to about music & boys, and the like. I love that my girls all have each other. Théa and Eden are only 15 months apart. They can be so close at times, like just the other night when they were circling the island in the kitchen chasing each other. The game they were playing was to see who could get the other one's butt first. No, I'm not kidding. Then there are times like a while back when Eden got so upset with Théa, (simply because she was hovering over her while she practiced piano), that she hauled off and slapped her on the back so hard it left a bright red mark for several minutes. From what I'm told this is pretty normal for girls so close in age. I'm also told that they will, more than likely outgrow it, and become genuine friends who stick up for each other when outside friends try to come between them, and choose to share clothing, and music, and talk to each other about all things girly. I can't wait for those days.
Happy Monday all,
