We differ on small things–like, Do you really have to pay $300 for a serum that works??–but line up on all the big ones.
And as I parent and watch my own children play, I frequently find myself remembering all the things my sister and I got up to in our childhood. From lemonade stands on a way-too-busy road to attract customers (ha!); to days on the lake fishing with our Pap and cousins; to dressing up our dog and pushing him a stroller like a baby, we were thick as thieves.
Even through our disagreements as both kids and adults, I always come back to a deep gratefulness for this person that God gave me to go through life with.
And don’t even get me started on the fascinating science behind birth order and how it impacts our personalities.
I think this is another case of science proving something that many of us already intuitively know–brothers and sisters, while sometimes being the biggest pain in the ass and/or heart, can also be the greatest emotional gift.
So let’s meet my greatest emotional gift, shall we? 😉
Nicole is notoriously Internet shy (we are working on that!), but I thought it would give you a peek into not only her personality, but also that fascinating sibling dynamic, which can probably, in turn, help to clarify some of my own weird ways.
Older and wiser 😉
Previous answer. But honestly, wiser with some things but foolish with others.
Spontaneous, loving, dramatic
Too many to name but quite a few include food, family and silly decisions
So many. I’ve learned that showing your feelings doesn’t make you weak; taking your time with things proves beneficial (and also fewer re-do’s); and that having a younger sibling can make you feel like you’ve done a lot of cool things in life.
Does a mom ever have a day off?! Ha! Fitness regimen for sure, scrolling the internet for fashion finds and my next place to jet set to, and catching up on my newest Netflix obsession (TBD).
I’ve often thought of this, but have a hard time picking just one. Depends on the area of life… My family has generally been great inspiration. My parents are still married after 40+ years- something I wasn’t able to do first time around so I really have a respect for that.
Again, committing to one thing is so hard!
Great denim–both jeans and shorts. There isn’t any place you couldn’t go in a great pair of denim and killer shoes. (Did someone say stilettos?!?!?!)
See that last answer? Told you she was internet shy. 😉
I’m thinking I need to drag her into more of my shenanigans. She’s seriously great with fashion–the true yin to my yang. What do you think? 🙂
And tell me: Are you and your sibling alike, or are you like us and two sides to the same coin?
