It’s something that will be held against me all of my life , but an anecdote told over and over by my mam. When they brought home my little baby sister from the hospital she was squarking away whilst I was trying to watch Rainbow (and just remember you only got one shot at kids TV back then , no iPlayer or all day kids channel) I turned to my parents and said “Why couldn’t we just have got a dog instead of a baby” which given the circumstances highlighted above I’m sure you can completely understand!!
She’s grown on me through the years though and now I’m a big fan of my little sister . Here’s why she’s awesome :
1) She makes me laugh like noone else in the world does , has or will.
At least once everytime I talk to her on the phone I laugh , at her house I spend half the time guffawing ,or honking as my nephew once referred to it.
She’s just a naturally funny human , we were going to turn her into a stand up comedian once but we only really had 2 jokes!! I don’t know if this is a universal younger sibling thing or not !
She is my personal shopper
She sends stuff like this. I appreciate it.
She produces fabulously quirky humans
Eldest nephew has the same hilarious traits as his mother , he is so funny I am going to have to step up my campaign to get him to write me a guest blog. My niece is so like me I think she’s amazing , goody two shoes with a slightly clumsy side , how is that not just adorable. WE ARE ADORABLE NOT ANNOYING!! Youngest nephew is the quirkiest of all…. I’ll just leave this here….
Yep….just casually reading the Bible in the Drs surgery…
She’s down with the kids
Literally on the floor ,taken down by the kids after challenging this one to a wrestling match……fool
She makes me feel really wise….
Especially about cooking!!!
Once years ago she did ask me how you should cook lettuce so we’ve certainly moved on…
Unfortunately I think I have just been an extraordinary advice giver as her dinner pics these days are delicious, bit hey this is meant to be about her not me!
In jokes are the funniest thing!
This is the case for most people, there is nothing funnier than having someone around you can just say a word or two and they know exactly what you mean….also since gifs I can take it to a new level….
Tee hee hee stupid monpole !
She’s a hangover fairy godmother
Wine gets consumed when I make it home for a visit. A lot of wine.
Yet you always wake up amazingly hangover free in the morning…..you can’t understand it ,you think you’ve managed to get back to your pre child self who didn’t get hangovers.
Until she tells you she woke you with painkillers and water at the crack of dawn in a preemptive strike!! Magic!
She is a one off….
Absolutely broke the mould after her. Her opinions on dinosaurs and space are as funny as they are frustrating……the questions she thinks of are as though someone has made a new brain prototype as I honestly don’t think the things she ponders have ever crossed another person’s mind!!! I’ve got to get her into vlogging her little ideas as I really have to share this with the world!!
Along with all her quirks though and her funniness and basic all round entertainment value there is so much more to her .
She’s great to rant at , she’ll listen and then do anything she can to help
She’s the fun auntie everyone has funny stories about.
She’s an amazing mum.
A really amazing mum.
They’ve had a really rough time over there recently and I hate not being close enough to help out. She’s there though , getting on with it . Parenting the shit out of life and managing to be in 10 places at once (obviously not literally I’ve not managed to clone her yet – I’ll share her when I do!) I couldn’t be prouder of her ability to deal with 10 tonnes of crap and still finding time to tag me in FB memes !!
Happy Birthday LouLou , I love you!…… now PLEASE come to see Wicked with me???
What’s your favourite thing about your siblings??
