Happy 27th birthday to my db. It’s hard to believe my baby brother is 27. I remember when he was a baby and I would take a black magic marker and draw smiley faces on the backside of his diaper. I always thought it was funny, but my mom didn’t. I remember growing up together, we always got along. Granted I am seven years older than him, but we were the best of friends. I remember when I was about 18 or so, he would come in my room to watch tv with me and would brush my hair. He would never want anyone to know he did that, but that’s just how close we were. We are still close, but we do not get to see much of each other anymore. His job takes him out of state often and when he is home he is usually spending time with his girlfriend. He is very special to me. I miss those times we had together. I remember when he was about 7, maybe younger, he started playing basketball. I never missed a game. He played every year until he graduated high school. Unfortunatly I could not attend all of his games then because I lived in California, but I looked forward to coming home and going to see him play. I am so thankful for memories. I am glad that they give us something to hold onto. I know that one day my girls will be 27 and I will be looking back and remembering things about their childhood. I hope that they always remain good friends like I have with my brother. Siblings should always love each other and be the best of friends. I didn’t say they always had to get along, because our girls certainly do not, but there are times that they can’t stand to be apart.
Do you have brothers or sisters? What are some of the things you remember about when you were growing up?
