So, our first born is sweet and aptly called Sister. We started calling Sister that when her little brother came along. We always referred to her when speaking to him as Sister or Sissy...it stuck. It stuck so much that many family members call her Sister, so much that many of Boo's friends also call her Sister. So much that when Boo says her real name, I have to ask him a couple times who he is talking about. It is a nice tradition though, as my hubby's grandma (an exceptionally wonderful, lovely, amazing woman akin to Rose Kennedy) was always called Sis growing up. Once Sister heard this, she likes the idea of always be called Sister.
Sister is sassy, funny, into fashion and music. She recently entered the talent show at her school - she will be singing Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da by The Beatles. In a time of HSM galore and that hussy Miley, I'm glad she picked something classic, and something that totally fits her. She also recently went to a friend's New Years Party. At the party, one of the activities was making a list of your goals for 2009. Here's Sister's:
1. Have a sleepover with a friend.
2. Get better at soccer.
3. Earn money by doing chores (um...ok!)
4. Ride a sled standing up
5. Win a contest!
Wow, is all I can say, oh and to be seven again!
