Sisters, I was the worst!
I never fully appreciated my siblings. And I was a pretty lousy sister. I see my own kids misbehave and I can remember just how much of a terrible sibling I was.
So Sorry I Sucked As A Sister
As an adult and a parent I am ready to make amends from childhood past.
Who knows why I said such mean things to my brother? Or slapped my sister, hard across the face when I was eight. I remember her tears and I remember my very long time out.
And I was the sibling that took a dig at my brother and sister, and for that I am sorry. I was good at pushing buttons and I did it, often.
So I pushed things too far at times, likely out of boredom. And for that I am so sorry.
And I was terrible at keeping secrets and my word was never my bond. I have since changed that.
I was the biggest tattle tale on the planet. So unfair to my brother and sister.
And I was such a pain. I am shocked either one of you put up with me.
I used to insist my brother let me play with him and his friends.
And he was forced to take me with him everywhere. I am sorry I put him through that now.
I always had to buy the same clothes as my sister and it drove her nuts! Why did I torture her like that? Now I wouldn’t be caught dead being “matchy matchy” with anyone. Ha!!!
I just wish I was calmer and had not make so much trouble for them.
I wanted them both to feel bad and I feel good. Why was I such a mean girl?
I am so grateful that even though I remember these moments with personal disgust, we are all good now.
For my brother and sister, it meant nothing.
So when I see my kids battling it out with each other, instead of telling them to cool it, I just make sure they come to terms after the duel.
I want my kids to value their relationships with each other. And when I am gone, I know they will be able to trust their solid bond with each other and have each others backs.
I am so grateful for my brother and sister. They are my foundations. And they are my rocks. And I am so sorry for putting my childhood bratty self upon them.
Love-Sis (the mean one)
