Happy Siblings Day! This post was inspired by Melissa who posted about her sister yesterday -- now I have to blog about mine!
Where do I even start with this story? My sister was born seven years after me, so at times it has been difficult for us to have things in common or even get along. I remember the day my sister was brought home; it was pretty exciting to not be the only child anymore. Lillian (Lilly) and I couldn't be any more different either - - she is a sports fanatic playing soccer and basketball while I've spent most of my life hiding out in my room writing and reading. She calls me a nerd and I call her a little boy. It's a very loving relationship.
We both....well, we really don't have much in common. But some of my favorite memories were the times when we would play together as kids. Especially when we would play "house." Everyone else played that game, right?! We also made a mean fake store. We had a little plastic cash register and set it up to run like a store. We could play "store" for hours on end.
Considering our age gap, we never have to worry about stealing boyfriends or even running into each other at school. However, she is almost taller than me - - she's 12 and I'm 19! So we can share clothes sometimes which is nice. I love my little sister!! (And she has been asking me to blog about her for a while, so here ya go Lil! Happy Siblings Day!)
"I'm only up when you're not down.
Don't wanna fly if you're still on the ground.
It's like no matter what I do.
Well you drive me crazy half the time;
the other half I'm only trying to let you know that what I feel is true.
And I'm only me when I'm with you."
