I haven’t joined in this siblings link up for such a long time, but it’s tough getting both my babies in the same place at the same time these days!
So this month I have snatched an image they took themselves!
Bernard is now settled at university, and last weekend we all joined her there for my birthday. Splosh & Irish baby arrived the day before us, so they got have a real sibling catch up before their boring old parents turned up!
And this was the instagram caption to the picture –
Bad nights sleep on a bus in my work clothes , going to the wrong station and getting chewing gum on my trousers all worth while because I got to see my kid sister today. #siblings #firstbestfriend #growingup
And I think that’s what makes me so proud of them both – that middle hastag “#firstbestfriend ” Because that is how they see each other. The first real friend they ever had was each other, and they still see each other in the same way.
Others have come and gone, confidences cemented and broken, secrets told and shared, but through everything they still have each other and when the chips are down they will always rescue the other one!
What a beautiful pair – you know what? I think we did a pretty good job with those 2!
