Sibling rivalry. Little fights, arguments, grasping for attention from any parent that will give it. The life of having to share. It's been said that kindergarten teaches sharing. I don't believe it. I think you learn to share as soon as you become old enough to start understanding that word. And sharing is hard, especially if it's having to learn to share your parents or siblings. I remember when my parents brought my younger sister Tasha home, and I have watched my own children adjust to sharing our attention. Even though this adjustment tends to be hard, I wouldn't change having sisters for all the attention in the world.
I have two sisters, younger and older, yep that's right...I have middle child syndrome (and both my sisters would agree to this claim) Even though they would say I suffer from the need more so than the want for attention, but that's neither here nor there! When I was younger you couldn't separate my older sister Tina and I. She was my best friend and I adored her. I still do.
