My baby sister turns 23 today!
When I think back to my childhood, one thing I am eternally grateful for is my sister. The bond 2 sisters share is something you can't describe and can only understand it if you share one. I often tell my sister that I feel like we are twins because we are so close at heart. I feel like there are times that we can be so tuned in to one another that we don't have to speak and we grow even closer.
Growing up, we had our share of ups and downs. I am sure I was excited when she came along (probably jealous, but I do recall watching a home video where I called her "My bebe" 40 times), but, like all sisters, we were brats along the way. Sure, she bit my back fat and I shook her head. Yes, I made fun of her inability to care for her baby-think-it-over doll in high school and she made fun of the fact that I sucked my thumb until I was 21 (yep, you read that right. Twenty. One. Wouldn't have known from this set of brace-free pearly whites!). I buzzed her barbies and threw them in the "jacuzzi" toilet and she refused to let me sleep with her- well- my whole life when I was scared at night of dead people. BUT, this is why we love each other.
My sister is my life, my rock, my best friend and the one I cannot imagine living without. She is beautiful, kind, giving, compassionate, and hilarious. She makes a fool out of herself and doesn't care. She sings with me to our "songs" by Amy Grant and Wilson Phillips. She cuddles with me and says "Eeeeeeeee" when she gets excited. She wears kids' shoes and has webbed toes. We are the opposite, but we are the same. As much as I look up to her and wish I could be just like her, I know she feels the same.
I love my sister! What a blessing she is. I can't imagine who I would be without her. There is no one like her.
Here are a few of our fav memories. I know they won't make sense to you, but they are precious to us!
|Chrissy and I at Grandma's house. I can't believe I let go of Yella Baby long enough to hold her! See that purple hand? Chew it, let it harden, sniff it, and rub it. I'm ashamed to admit how long I did that.|
|Getting ready to attack my twinkie. She looks innocent- I am sure she either let out a huge fart or bit me. Always so spoiled. Why did SHE get the pink bow?! =)|
|Tramped up as Big Bird with BLUE EYESHADOW THNX MOM. Did you have those McDonald's happy meal tubs? Awesome!|
|Classic Kurowski Picture. Dan Dan cool as a cucumber. Me trying to be perfect (and succeeding, amen), Chrissy being a Draaaaaaammma Queeeen.|
