My kids are lucky, they all have had someone to grow up with while they are at home.
This morning I was going through some pictures and I found some 'aww' moments that made me smile. I'm rushing around a bit this morning, but I wanted to share a few of them. I know I've had a couple of these up before, but that's okay...I'm just sharing the happy I had this morning, reflecting on the relationships my children have developed with one another over the years.
|My daughter has always hated to be away from her brother. Here he is coming off of the field to see her when she's reaching through the fence to try and get to him.|
|Fast forward years later, and that same little sister still has a hard time leaving her brother when it's time to (even harder now that he lives several states away).|
|Older brothers can be counted on to do things like push you down during a family vacation picture because that's funny.|
|Or make you wear your sister's Minnie Mouse headband for a picture at Disney (bribery that I may or may not have been involved with was here ;o) ).|
But you still act silly and jump in their arms like a goofball when you get to see them (after they've grown up and live far away).
Of course there are tons of other pictures that made me laugh or think, 'awww,' but putting them all up would take up far too much room on the blog, and way too much of your time. ;) I guess what I'm thinking this morning, is that like most parents can say, my children all have a very special relationship with one another separately, and they have a great one collectively too. And even though there have been many moments of one telling another to 'Get out of my room,' or 'I'm telling mom!' there have also many 'aww' moments. To tell you the truth, I like either kind of moment (usually ;) ). I'm sure parents/siblings everywhere can relate.
That being said, today is 100 Days of School for my youngest, which is a VERY big deal, so I'm headed over to the Kindergarten to party today (woot!). Happy Tuesday to ya! :)
