When your baby sister turns 16

Today is my younger sister's 16th birthday ,and I honestly can't believe I've gotten to enjoy this little goober for 16 years.

It's so strange because I can remember before she was born yet I can't imagine my life without her now.  I still distinctly remember the day she was born. I was so excited to be checked out of school, even in the middle of my favorite video about astronauts, to go meet her at the hospital. Even though I slightly hated her for about 2 days while my mom was still in the hospital after her birth, I've been thankful for her since. I've said before that I'm thankful to be a sister because it's taught be so many great life skills. Having a younger sister has truly pushed me to be a better person; it helps me stay accountable to living a life that I'd want her to model.

Happy Birthday to the weirdest, kindest, smartest, funniest, best, only "still a kid" in our family.

  1. Mine just turned 18! I feel you on the surreal part of the whole thing. It's weird how they all grow up :(

  2. My little one just turned TWENTY ONE!! I still look at her like she's eight, and I probably will for the rest of my life lol


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
