“You Can Kid the World. But Not Your Sister.”

I don’t know that I would have been a great sister to a … sister.  I’m not girly.  I can’t paint my own toes without getting stained cuticles, pink looks really bad on me, and I have burn marks all over my neck from failed flat iron attempts.  So I was given a little brother to torture.  We played He-Man and quizzed each other on Thundercats while falling asleep. 

And yet.

I wonder what it would have been like to have a girly comrade.  Some one to steal clothes from, to talk cute boys with, to play hair with, to tell secrets to, to giggle with; someone with whom to fight over the curling iron.  A sister.

Hannah and Gracie are sisters; giggling, secret telling, curling iron sharing sisters in every sense of the word.  I had a fantastic time with them.  It almost made me wish I had traded in my little brother when my mom sat me down with the Sears catalog and told me to pick a new brother from the toddler section, since mine annoyed me so much.  I relented and kept him.  He owes me.

Hannah and Gracie, thanks for such a fun session … you girls are gorgeous, inside and out.  I had a wonderful time with you both, and here’s to a Hunger Games movie release date SOON. 😉
