Another parent story......

I had to laugh reading that I was not as bad a mother as the "Books" at the time told me I was........

Then I thought about my mother....she had 5 kids and I am not sure how many (at least 1 maybe2) miscarriages...then when my youngest brother was 10 and I was married and found out I was going to have my 3rd.......my announces that she is going to have a baby and we could be in the hospital at the same time......not the same one though.....

So here comes my little sister....born on the 6th of the month and my son was born on the 20th of the same month...more on that later.

Well at her house it was boil the bottles and nipples and change the kid everytime she moved (these were cloth diaper times) you know, don't breathe to close to the baby etc........

The the cute little baby got to the climbing stage and I walked in one day and there she was in the middle fo the table scraping her finger into the butter and licking it off her fingers...."Mom do you see what she is doing?" My mom says yes she got up there all by herself isn't that cute? If any of us would have tried to eat something inbetween meals we would have been in trouble....she treated her like some people treat their grandkids...LOL I know this because she was super grandmother...so no wonder I am like I am I got mixed signals....lol

My beautiful baby sister grew up to be very smart and talented and so nice you can't help but like her...but when she turned 5 on the 6th of Oct. she could go to school and my son who was born on the cut off for starting school on the 20th.......told her younger nephew "I get to go to school first because you are to dumb to get to go"........for most of us in our family that I know of we don't hold grudges.....and today those 2 are the closest 2 people to each other.....

People asked my 2 DD what it was like to have an aunt younger than they were and my girls said they got to have an aunt and friend all in one.....
