Sisters Do as Sisters Should
I grew up with two older brothers whom I love dearly, but my mornings started with a lot more farting and head locks than I anticipate Lainey and Katie dealing with. There is just something about a sisterly bond that I have always desired and am excited to watch grow between my two girls.
My brothers did some pretty great "sisterly" stuff with me in our youth. My oldest brother would watch cheerleading competitions with me (which I am just now realizing wasn't that big of a sacrifice on his part) and then we would go into our living room and practice cheers together with me standing on his shoulders. My other brother would play dress up with me in Mom's and Dad's clothes. I would be in Dad's clothes, he would be in Mom's, complete with clip on earrings and her square dancing petty coats.
With Lainey being such a performer already, I am curious if one day they could do a version of The Lawrence Welk skit from SNL. I think the possibility of this future skit would be the strongest argument to make to my husband for more children in the future.
