Sibling love, past and present



Today Natalie brought home a heart-shaped drawing book filled with pictures of the things she loves. I was struck by this one; how carefully she had drawn her brothers in this picture, down to their favorite shirts and skin tones. So for Love Thursday, I decided to search around for a photo that shows a big sister's love.

It didn't take me long to find this one. She's 2 years and 9 months old (younger than the boys are now), and the boys are about a week old. I love how happy and proud she looks. Three years later, they fight a lot more than they hug, but the drawing she made today is a cute little reminder of how much she still loves them.

hello Bonggamom,
Thanks for visiting my site and also for the effort of leaving a short message to us.
I’ve heard so many good things about you from Peach Lopez and she’s the one who recommended your site to me and we visited it together. I feel like I know you already by just reading your blogs. It’s like reading my own life as a mom through you. Keep on blogging.

Ouch, that's heavy! Thanks for the little lesson, we'll all think more carefully about the words we use!

Bongga Mom said...

OOPS! Pay no attention to my last comment, I meant that to go on someone else's site!

I love LOVE love the picture of Natalie with her brothers!
ANd the picture she drew is perfect. You will HAVE to save that one for them when they are older. I bet it will mean the world to them to have that later on.
