I haven’t mentioned this very often but I have two sisters that are 15 years old and 21 years old. I also have a 10-year-old brother. My brother plays a special role in my life but that’s a whole other story that I may get into one day. I wanted to share a little bit about my sisters.
If you follow me then you know I had a birthday recently and my age was revealed. Yes, I am quite a bit older than my little sisters. I can almost be their mom. Being a mom myself it can be hard not to go into mom mode with them. I always tell my sisters that I am your sister first.
We do have a huge age gap but we can usually try to relate to one another. Something that I haven’t shared is that my sisters are the reason why I started blogging. I didn’t even know what a blog was until my sisters enlightened me. They are way more into social media and they know the latest trends and fashions. I’ve actually learned a lot through them. If it weren’t for them I wouldn’t have taken the chance to do something that I truly love!
We bring out the silliness in each other. We can be far away from each other and still come together like no time was lost. We can get crazy but that’s what I think is so great about us. We can truly be ourselves with each other.
Growing up it wasn’t like this. We weren’t close at all. In fact, we were the total opposite. I was in high school when my sister Kelsey was about 6 years old. I was busy with school and extra curricular activities while my little sister was learning how to count. My baby sister, Elysse was just born when I was 15 years old. You can imagine how we were on different life paths.
I was called the “kissy monster” and the “mean sister”. Where as, my sister was annoying to me and wouldn’t get out of my room. I think about it now and I was mean at times. It didn’t help that little kids got on my nerves. I was just never the type to really like kids. Go figure, because now I am a mom!
I moved out at 18 so I didn’t get much time with my little sisters. It’s not until now that I’ve grown up and wised up on how to be a good sister. We make each other mad by annoying each other but that’s what makes it so funny. That’s our way of bonding. I try to stay involve and call and text them as much as possible.
Our lives are very different and even though we are practically a state a way we are very close. I am thankful for my sisters and I wouldn’t have it any other way even though they still know how to annoy me!
Thanks for reading,
