Yesterday was National Siblings Day, so I posted this picture on Facebook for my "little" brother, Matt. I think we were maybe 6 and 3 here? "Here," being the lamppost outside my grandparents' house.
(Remember this song? This was my lamppost. ❤)
(And by the way, Crackerjack took a look at this picture and first marveled that Uncle Matt was once so much smaller than me and then asked, "Is that really what girls wore back then?" Lol.)
And here we are today - or really, last Christmas - but at this age, who's counting?
Matt and I had *a wonderful* childhood, and I'd say we had a pretty typical "big sister-little brother" kind of relationship. Though I've also heard it said I was a little more like a "second mother" to Matt from the get-go. Today he's a great uncle to my boys as well as Crackerjack's godfather.
So I grew up with one younger brother and now I'm raising three (soon to be four) brothers. I guess all that "mothering" was good practice. :)
And in the spirit of the holiday, I'd also like to say that I am very proud of my boys and the brothers - and friends - they are to each other.
Bill and I were just saying this morning that Baby-O was always meant to be ... he just had to wait for the right time to sneak into the lineup!
Do you have any siblings? Where do you fall in the family lineup?
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great Thursday, my friends!
