Blog Challenge - Day 5

Day 5-Your siblings

Kelli - My oldest sibling is my sister Kelli. She is a mere year and a half older than me. We grew up very close. We shared friends, we shared activities, we provided each other a great deal of competition to do well in school. At last tally she had me beat out with a 97% to my 96%. :D As we have gotten older it is hard to spend time the way we used to. Life tends to get in the way...

She is due to have a new baby in a couple of weeks and I am so elated to become an aunt again. I can't wait to meet Baby Emily and I am hoping that if we are both Moms of small kids it will give us more of a reason to spend time together.


Katy - Katy is the third born (after me). Katy as a child was both the sweetest child and the biggest pain in the butt. She was adorable but would be the first one to tattle on the rest of us when we were being naughty. I think it is obvious that she struggles with mental illness so I am not going to touch on that part of my sister. What I am so happy to see is that she is making such huge strides to better herself, to be a good Mom to her daughter and to connect with her family. We are in such a better place then we were a couple years ago.


Ryan - Oh, my goofy brother. To me he will always be this obnoxious four year old with blond curly locks. :D He is now a whole lot older and a whole lot bigger (he towers over me at about 6'1"). Somehow my little brother can manage to both irritate the crap out of you while making you laugh so hard you want to pee your pants. He's funny with a very dry, snarky sense of humor. She is overall such a nice person. He truly cares about the people around him and I love that about him.


Us as siblings - I don't know how to describe our dynamic... it's very fluid. One month I am closest with one sibling and the next it changes. We all have gone through our fair share of crap over the years and the thing that I love most about my siblings is that we are ALWAYS there for each other. We are in each others business. We fight, we yell, we scream, we make up. I guess in a lot of ways it's the same way it was when we were little. :D




About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
