My sisters are going to kill me for this one.

Going on 23 years ago, I made my debut into their lives. It's funny, how our personalities are prevalent so early on in our lives. I was a screamer. Unhappy. I wanted to be one of the "big girls" from the second I came out of the womb. My sister's tolerated me as best as an 8 year old and a 4 year old could.

But time marches on...I grew out of it...sorta. I still scream when I'm angry, but anywho, we spent a bit of time doing this

Primping was our forte...My middle sister, Brittainy (the one on the far right) taught me how to apply my make-up, she helped me choose my clothes, taught me about style and gave me my first maxi-pads when I was 13 and too embarrassed to ask my mom (I'm sorry if my mention of maxi-pads embarrassed you, momma, "just keepin' it real")

But with three girls, there must have been cat fights, right? Oh, there were cat fights alright. There was drama. There were tears...oh buddy, was there ever drama. (and still is)

But more than any of that, there was laughter. Lots and lots of laughter. I am the goofy one. Can you tell? I often suckered my sisters into participating in all kinds of antics with me. They enjoyed it, I don't care what they say.

They were usually pretty good natured. But most of the time, I was the loud, obnoxious, bird-legged shrimp following them around, clamoring for their attention, poking my nose into their bedrooms and generally just annoying the dookie out of 'em.

I was in a constant state of melancholy when they both left for college. That's the bad thing about being the baby, you're always the last to go. And I was VERY impatient to "go"

We go through pretty much everything together, and at least one of us will be there for the other one.



New experiences...and things we don't care to ever do again.

Hasty courthouse marriages. (notice Tyler and I are the only ones that look genuinely happy?)

And even though we may disagree (which we do quite often) and we fight, and we hurt each other, and we say things we don't mean, and one of us isn't speaking to the other...one thing still remains, and it always will whether we like it (or choose to accept it) or not....

We're sisters, and aint nothin' none of us can do 'bout it.

I am the youngest of 3 too. Had 2 older brothers. One passed away over 2 years ago and I still miss him terribly. He was 12 yrs older and my other bro is 5 yrs older. I was, still am and always will be the little sister. :)

I know how hard I was on them, always being the follower and wanting attention from them!!!
At least now they don't mind! You look pretty happy together with your sisters, beautiful!!!

That's so sweet. I'm not that close to my sister. I'd like to be, but she and my mom are so close I feel cut out.

MaryCatherine said...

Great post, but it's probably good that you are so far away from said sisters. =)

You know you really need to do a "cousins" post. Matt won't care, 'cause he won't ever see it. LOL He's too busy being macho geek man...that's a web designer who skate boards and takes part in paint ball tournaments. And that's my own definition, by the way.
