Everything You Need to Know About Siblings
May 10th, 2014
Do you have one child? Are you contemplating adding a second to your life? Here’s all you need to know about siblings in two brief vignettes:
1 — A week ago Miss Mouse was invited to a birthday party to which Buggie was not invited. To lessen the sting for him, we decided that Josh would take him to a movie while I took Miss Mouse to the party. When we informed them of The Plan, they both immediately burst into tears because they each wanted what the other one had.
2 — This afternoon, on the way home from (another, different) birthday party, the two swapped items from their goodie bags. A lime green sticky hand for a Spiderman ring. And Buggie said to Miss Mouse: “I love you, Sissy. We’re best friends.”
That, my friends, is what it’s like with siblings in the house.
