Quotes about Sisters


I am going to go visit my sister this weekend.  She is having a baby and we are going shopping for baby clothes.  As I am the more seasoned sister with a child already, I will be the dutiful sister and provide advice on buying clothes for a child you’ve never met.  Really, I think she just doesn’t want to shop alone, but I’ll take it.  I am the oldest and I have 2 younger sisters, one that is 24 and 1 that is 19.  We’ve yelled, we’ve cried, we’ve laughed and we’ve beat the crap out of each other.  We’re sisters and I wouldn’t change a thing.
