Sassy is now almost 2 1/2, and her little (or should I say BIG) personality is emerging. She is sweet-natured and loving, but has a hot temper and knows exactly what she wants. Sometimes when Sissy wants to snuggle, she gets an emphatic "NO!" and sometimes even a push. Of course, Sissy is outraged, and proceeds to huff away to her room. She's no slouch in the "knowing-what-you-want" department either, I might add. I keep telling myself that one day God will use these strong personalities in an amazing way. Right now, their primary function seems to be to make me tired.
I know in my heart that all of this stuff is normal. I know siblings fight, and it's all part of the deal. It's still hard sometimes to let that idealized notion of sisters go. I just need to go ahead and embrace the noisy, fussy, sweet, messy business of sisterhood.
