While at school I kept calling my mom's friend to see if there was any news. I was in luck, my first beautiful sister made her debut and there was an instant sisterly bond formed.
Fast forward a few years for this Monday's Moment. My sister and I did everything we could together regardless of our difference in age. There was a point were I was home schooled for half a year to help my mom out after the next child came along. This meant lots of sisterly bonding time as she was still a toddler.
One particular day we were thumbing through an Oriental Trading magazine together. As we would look at each photo I would point to something and say, "That's my bracelet," followed by my sister pointing at something in the same photo announcing, "Well, that's my bracelet." It became a game as we each claimed items in various photos. We came across a photo that had four Halloween character cups. I quickly called my cup, "That's my mummy." My sister eager to stake hers loudly exclaimed, "That's my daddy," all the while pointing at a Frankenstein cup.
My dad was all sorts of excited to know his daughter saw a resemblance between him and the great holiday figure.
There are some days I wish I could step back in time and just bask in my childhood memories where everything seemed to come so much easier.
Do you have a funny Halloween moment you would like to share, I'm always up for a good story.
