Brothers and Sisters

  

Being a girl, I don’t know what it’s like to be one of two brothers, but I imagine it’s magical. Honestly, I want nothing more for my boys than the relationship I see between my husband and his younger brother. They are truly, truly friends. I’m not sure it has always been that way but watching them as adults, I am amazed at how easy and fun and supportive and real their relationship is. 

I do you know what it’s like to be a sister of a younger brother. We were not close when we were very young but became so before I left for college. My brother is one of the smartest, sweetest, kindest, most reliable people I know. I don’t deserve him but I am thankful for him every day.

As devastated as I was when I found out we were having twins, I am thankful that there will be three of them. Two brothers and a sister. I am thankful they will have each other when they are little and when they are big and when we are old and we need them.

I hope they will always be close, no matter how annoying they may find each other from time to time. I am so thankful I was able to give them to each other. If I never do anything else right in my life, I will always have this.

  1. Agrrr they’re so cute!!!! My mom worries about that too, a lot. We’re three sisters, I’m the eldest, and she says that there’s nothing like being able to rely on your siblings. If you can make it work, there isn’t a stronger bond!
