Wordy Wednesday: Sibling Revelry

Welcome to Wordy Wednesday!

Today's subject is:

Sibling Revelry

Yup, you read it correctly. We are celebrating the upside of being in a brood! There are many advantages to having siblings, not the least of which include having a partner in crime, and having someone else there when you're scared of the dark.

Maybe it's because we homeschool and my kiddos do a lot of their activities together right now, like gymnastics, but I'm always amazed at how much my kids miss each other when they are apart. The big ones, that is. Kit doesn't yet realize that the kids are gone until they come home. But then she is super happy to greet them with arms wide and an energetic, "HIIIIIIIII!!"

The big kids, of course, love to get individual attention, but they are always so happy to get back to their dynamic duo. They fight, and squabble, and tattle-tell on each other, but, they also giggle, and conquer, and empathize with each other.

Adding Kit into their special sibling world was no chore for either of them. They adore her, chase her, save her. Each has developed their own little games with her, their own special relationship.

I've often referred to Zak and Grace as "two peas in a pod," but it seems that they have had no trouble at all making room for a third.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
