Chorus Line anyone? That is what Madeline reminds me of lately…I can do that, I can do that!
Everything, absolutely everything Chloe does, Madeline is 2 steps behind! This isn’t exactly anything new, what is new is the level of intensity this behavior has increased! If Chloe has it, her sister wants it! In all honesty, it makes me smile. Watching her look up to her big sister, I remember my little sister looking up to me that way growing up :).
My husband for the most part grew up as an only child and has always cheered for having a large family. I on the other hand grew up in a family of 4, always thought I wanted 4 kids…until I had 1. Lol. But I am happy with our family, and although it can be tough at times trying to juggle it all – and positively frightening knowing another is on the way – they sure do make me smile. I am so happy my daughters will always have each other to laugh, cry, love, and even hate sometimes. There is one things that never goes away, family.
My sister and I were as different as different can be, and still are to tell you the truth. Growing up we rarely got along, but age has given us a new respect for one another, and we have grown to be each others closest friends. She is the first person I call when I need to talk to someone, well…her and my Mom, and she is always there for me.
I look at Chloe & Madeline and I pray that they have the same closeness that I share with my sister, and I am so thankful that we are taking the plunge into having another. It may be chaos, but it is MY chaos. And I love it.
