B is for Big Sister
Being the big sister is a lot of responsibility. Her little sister, Hunter, worships her. It is a joy to see how close they are. They are each others best friend. When I was visiting a few weeks ago Megan hat a fit about where she wanted to sit in the car. Her father gave her a brief but intense talk. In the middle of this discussion I see Hunter's little hand sneak onto Megan's knee and gently pat her for moral support. Meg doesn't always appreciate her sister's adoration. At one point during my visit she told me, "Nana, she just never stops talking. Sometimes I just want to be quiet by myself."
Last week my daughter posted the following on her Facebook status:
"I guess 5 is the age you decide your sister, the most loved and treasured person in the world to you, is no longer allowed in your room. Complete with "No sister's allowed" signs on the door. I give it 12 hours, tops."
Maybe Megan will finally get that quiet time alone that she's wanted.
