My sibling story
Sometimes big brothers ARE nice to their little sisters.
My brother died 10 years ago, he was 10 years older than me. I didn't have much of a relationship with him growing up, hence my son and daughter's ages being so close.
I do have a great story about my little ones...
My daughter, Hannah, turned 8 today. Her brother, Joshua, turns 9 on the 16th of April. This morning she woke up and the first thing she says to her brother is that she is now the same age as Joshua and he is officially not older than her.
Joshua could’ve broken the news to her that she is still 354 days behind him in age, which he usually does, but being the great big brother he is, agreed with her, but couldn’t resist the, “But only for the next 9 days”. So my daughter gets 9 glorious days of being the same “equal” age as her brother. Karen
