As an only child, I marvel at the world of sisters almost everyday. There is a lot that I want to write one day about this. This idea of being an only child and refereeing sibling battles. And being an only child and witnessing the most amazing love between two people that I have really ever seen.
For now though, I want to write about how these two people can have such an amazing range of feelings towards each other.
The girls only had school on Monday and Tuesday so that their teachers can participate in the New Jersey teachers convention later in the week. Because of this, their teachers chose to give no homework this week. As a parent who would ok if there was never any homework, I really looked forward to these two days.
Monday night started well but pretty quickly the girls started to fight. And they fought pretty consistently until they fell asleep. And then Tuesday night, they played happily for close to two hours without complaint.
How? I don’t think I would have ever had friends or found a husband if I loved a person on one day with the same strength that I disliked them the next. For those of you who are siblings and who are raising siblings, do you find this back and forth unique to sisters and brothers?
