I am the middle of 3 girls. My oldest sister is 18 months older and my little sister is 8 years younger. As we have gotten older, we have also gotten closer. Kristen has been out to visit twice in the past two months. It means a lot to us that she chose to come out to visit for her summer vacation. Jamie is on maternity leave and I talk to her almost every day for my lunch break or on the drive home. I think my parents would be surprised at how often I talk to them.
My relationship with them has got me thinking about Callan. I hope that if he has a brother or sister, they are close. My mom always reminds me that I used to call only children, lonely children. Even though we weren’t always close, I am glad we are now.
