I grew up instead of a sister to my brother as more of a mom. Miss bossy pants as I was, enjoyed my role as mother in our household of 4 while my mom was off playing father, (IE working herself to death to feed us.) When I was in charge, usually nothing got done, we fought like crazy, and the real mom was called more times than not in a day. But even though our dysfunctional family had it rough, we are fiercly protective of each other now. My little sister was the survivalist, ya know the one who could be thrown into any situation and would be guaranteed to survive. Small and tough, she protected us. My brother was the good and decent one but with an anger streak you didn't want to see and I was bossy and boring, usually forbidding any fun. But we had this way of sticking together even if we couldn't stand each other at the time. Heaven forbid someone mess with our family. And since we have all parted ways we grow closer and deeper in love of what we had. We may not have had much growing up, but we had each other and that was what was important.
Beth, who is pregnant with their first child SF. Why only initial's? Well they have kept my little niece's name a secret to all but family, so I know and you don't. But in less than three days my little niece will make her debut into this world! And in about 15 days I will get to hold her! I am so excited! So we need your prayers for a healthy baby, a safe trip and a healthy and happy Joslyn. Because 2200 miles is a long way to drive with a very unhappy child. So I don't know how we are going to get to celebrate my brother's and husband's birthdays, but they will get to hang out together! We also are going to explore Tennessee a little, so if you know of anything we should see besides the obvious things in Tennessee, please let me know. So March is going to be so grand! What are your plans for March?
