Do you have siblings? Well I have 4 of them. 3 sisters and a brother, who is the youngest. Me, being the oldest, have the upper hand of knowing all of their personalities and I know about all of their mishaps as small ones lol. So this is a reminder to them; do not make me mad enough to release all the goods on y’all. I was the only child for seven years, and I was happy when I found out my mom was having a baby, but when that baby got big enough to mess with my belongings all that changed.
My first little sister was a true thorn in my side and I couldn’t understand why. At first she was this sweet little thing that I could teach things to and she followed me around like I was all she knew. But one day she became this annoying tattle-tale and I no longer wanted her following me around so she told that as well! My mother would instruct me to let her tag along, ooh the things I would mumble under my breath. Oh don’t act like you all haven’t done that :/ Anyway, her name is Gwee and even though she was a thorn she became a beautiful Rose in my Garden of Siblings.
Our middle sister Jaz is the sensitive firecracker! Yes, I meant to say firecracker.. lol. She is as sweet as she wants to be, but if you get on her bad side she will blow up like a bomb even though she has her big sisters to protect her. Jaz is very spoiled, she will not admit it but she is. Even the baby sister spoils her so she may be the middle sister but she is also the brat of the bunch. Our little brat is expecting and it will be so amazing to see her nurture her little one. I know Jaz will be an awesome mom, but I am biased right, whatever.
The baby sister is Sarah, and we call her Fatty. She was just the cutest little, juicy baby when she was born, and a family friend actually gave her the name, we never changed it. Of course she hates for people to call her that in public now, but me being the big sister I can get away with it. It’s a habit for me.Could you imagine me being 80 yrs old calling my sister fat-fat or fatty? HA! I can and I probably will.
Sarah is like one of my children because she lived with me for so long and I raised her with my girls for a while. I remember my husband and I had gotten so use to her being around we would always say we had 4 girls when people would ask how many kids we had at home. Oh but I thank God I did not physically birth 4 children. Three was enough to have grown in my womb, distort my figure, and then kick their way out! But, nevertheless I have 7 kids in total. Those are the benefits of having siblings.
My little brother and I was basically attached at the hip until he was about 2 years old. Then I had to stop picking him up because I was waiting for my own little girl to be born. He was such a mess, he would pull everything down if he could reach it. Most of the times it would be close to being pulled down on his lil head. Diontae would shuffle around in his walker and follow the other kids around, not having a clue about what they were doing. But, he was always on a mission to find something to crash. He has grown up to be a wonderful young man, and I feel bad for him because he has 4 sisters to deal with. Well, he doesn’t have to deal with us just those young women that believe they can step into his life without our say so. I know it may seem harsh, but hey we have to protect our lil brother!!! That’s just the way it is!
