Maybe I am just partial, but I think every girl needs a sister.  These two can go after one another like cats and dogs. Arguing over who rode with the remote last, whose turn it is to take the dog out, and tattling over who hit who first (always an “accident”). But when they decide (and make no mistake, it is a decision) to get along, there is nothing more sweet than watching these two enjoy one another’s company.

Inventing craft projects, sibling sleepovers, acting out plays, swinging in the backyard, playing for two hours in the playhouse, decorating the Christmas tree together, taking bubble baths together, riding bikes, helping each other with homework, and my favorite- being respectful of one another.

Don’t worry Mom, Kenley’s mouth shut in time. I think.

Yep, when these two get along it melts my heart and I wonder at what point they will realize just how lucky they are. Do they know that when they grow up, they will rely on each other for advice (you really should tell her no), the truth (um, those boots should have been donated to Goodwill three years ago), and reassurance (she may be sick now, but you will get through this). Really, there is nothing more dear than sisters.

Except maybe a little girl and a brother.
