Baby Sister Tells All

Ever wonder what it's like to live with a teenager -- from a younger sister's point of view? I finally got my tween to sit down and tell us a little bit about life with her older sister. Please welcome my guest blogger today -- my youngest daughter, a teenager-in-training:

Living with a teenaged sister. Oh, boy. Where do I even begin?

I guess I could start with the good side of it. It’s really great to have somebody to look up to and to talk to when you need advice, because you know for sure that they already went through it. She understands me because we are alike in many ways.

We laugh at a lot of the same things, like the same things and of course dislike many of the same things. She also gives me tips on how to not only survive, but thrive, at school, which really helps instead of going into school totally clueless on how to act or what to do. Which is great.

But do we argue? Does the sun rise in the morning? Is grass green? Well, yes, OF COURSE we fight! It’s always about the dumbest things. Like, “Hey, why’d you borrow my shirt without asking?” or “Hello? I was watching that! Change it back!” Stupid stuff like that.

But for the most part, it’s pretty cool to have someone to be able to talk to and to look up to. She’s going to college next year, and I will miss her. But don’t you dare tell her that!
