It was so fun having them home over the holidays. After a crazy few weeks of work and a quick fun, but exhausting, trip to London, I wasn’t feeling super awesome the week leading up to Christmas and they were the best.
“Want me to take the kids in the morning so you can sleep?”
“Can I take the kids to the gym with me and you can relax?”
“Can Adelaide come and live with me at college?” .
And I’m over here just wondering if they can drop out of college and live with me?
.Growing up, I didn’t feel particularly close to them. They’re six and eight years younger than me and always referred to as “the girls” in our family.
They stole clothes out of my closet. They were both bridesmaids in my wedding (at age 12 and 14). And sometime after that we became best friends.
And now I’m almost convinced I should keep having kids until Adelaide has some sisters of her own. Right?
a few old posts of the three of us:
- when they came to visit me in Findlay, Ohio a few weeks before I had Lincoln (not very flattering pictures)
- they came to visit pre-kids me in Cincinnati
- that snow day we all got matching onesies
Do you have sisters? Were you always close?
Maddie’s black booties: Ralph Lauren (more booties here)
Nicole’s trousers: Shein, c/o I wore these when I moderated a panel at the HBS marketing conference in the fall. They’re a light, comfortable, and flattering work pant option and I wish I had more reason to wear them. (more wide-leg pant options here)
