The first thing my 8-year-old does after getting himself out of bed in the morning is find his older brother, Jacob. Once located, then he finds me, his mother. I was initially offended at being second on the totem-pole, but then I decided he’s just the same way that I was with my own older sister.
Siblings are such a part of how we see ourselves that I wonder if my sister understands that part of her actually lives within me. This weekend I get to revisit the familiar feel of my childhood and spend time with my sister and her kids. We will be listening to music, swimming, sunning, reading, and perhaps doing a jigsaw puzzle.
Just like old times.
