Feeling the sibling love | PSF


Rainbows and unicorns don’t usually visit us. At least at the same time. So when the stars align and they do, we try to remember it.

With my fingers thick in juicy raw chicken, E woke up earlier than expected. Fortunately, her sisters love her to pieces and want to help. I sent the biggest up to entertain her baby sister so I could finish getting dinner ready. Things were a little quiet up there, and I realized I didn’t have the monitor on. I turned it on and saw this. #1 climbed into her sister’s crib to entertain her and keep her happy.

Totally her own idea. Totally adorable. Totally melts my heart. I think sibling love is right there under a mother’s love for their children. I know sibling love waivers. I know they will fight way worse then they have ever fought. Right now, I’m going to savor it and love that they love each other so much.

I had a repeat of getting dinner ready and #2 wanted to go up another day to play with her sister. I was thankful she offered and spied on them. There must have been a big sister conference earlier in the week, because she jumped right in the crib, too. Usually #2 makes ridiculous baby noises (no idea why, they drive me crazy). Today, however, she was talking to her sister. She said “you’re my best friend, E!” I’m convinced they are trying to melt my heart.

They sure are lucky to have each other. And I’m lucky they have each other. There will be trials down the road, but we’ll always have these moments to come back to.
