“Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring – quite often the hard way.” -- Pamela Dugdale
A few days ago my younger sisters met up with me at the park after work, bringing Panera, Starbucks, and a whole lotta sisterly sass. We spent two hours just talking about life, boys, literature, and the Broadway show, Hamilton.
The best thing about sisters is the ability to be 100% yourself. Too loud, too obnoxious, too mean, and always and completely horribly uncool. The ability to say stupid things and only get a little bit judged with that signature Kathryn look. Ask dumb questions you don't want to ask anyone else, admit fears you don't want to admit to anyone else, and maybe, sometimes, dance to Hamilton in public.
My big sister heart gets really happy when my two polar opposite little sisters get along. They have their own odd little rhythm that somehow works perfectly. It's what makes a simple, "Wanna meet at the park after work? Bring Panera, I'm starving" turn into a great afternoon full of laughter, heart-to-hearts, and just plain silly fun.
