The Green Eyed Monster has raised his ugly head in our home in the form of my little girl. While putting the kids to bed tonight, my daughter says to me,”So when are you going to write about me on your Blog?” I tried to explain to her that really this Blog is about me… how I feel, what I am thinking… my journey. She then pointed out to me that although that may be true, the tag line clearly states different. (She used those words too! I know I am in trouble with this one. She is 7 going on 17.) So unable to argue with that logic… I told her I would not only Blog about her tonight, which I am doing right now, but I would add a Category for Asthma. That seemed to make her happy.
I can only imagine what being Jay’s little sister is like. I know she loves her big brother… but it must be difficult too. And unfortunately it will most likely get worse for her as she goes through Middle school and High school. All I can do is make sure to keep carving out special time with her, and reassuring her that she too is special and oh so dear to my heart.
How do you all deal with this type of sibling rivalry?
