When my youngest brother was born, the dynamics of our family changed. We now had a baby in our house and I loved it. I was more than happy to spend time with my baby brother. He was 5 when I went to college and I missed him terribly.
Eventhough I have very different relationships with each of my brothers, I consider them my friends. I know that no matter what I can count on them.
When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I immediately did the math and realized that my kids would be 2 years apart. Just like me and my oldest brother. This revelation conjured up all kinds of marvelous childhood memories. Maybe my expectations were too high or maybe I haven't given it enough time, but my kids aren't there yet.
There are fleeting moments when my son can only be comforted by my daughter or they do something nice for the each other. It gives me a glimpse into what is hopefully to come. I want more than anything for them to look at each other as friends not just siblings.
So when I saw that the topic for Theme Thursday this week was Friendship, this is the first thing that came to my mind. The friendship that is found between siblings. I wanted to be able to capture that this week.
See more great friendships over at Stacy's.
