Day 5: 30 day challenge

day 5: your siblings

{meet my sister, beanie}
yes, we're related. we get asked all the time if we are really sisters, and yes, we share the same DNA, genes, parents, etc. beanie, is the nickname i gave my younger sister Arlene growing up. the nickname originally was arlenie beanie, then it got cut short to just beanie. she calls me jelly, so together we make jelly beanie. corny, yeah i guess so. lol. my sister and i are the complete opposite - night and day for real. i'm more quiet and reserved, and she's loud and funny! i've never met someone so funny! seriously, she's one of those people who doesn't even try to be funny and just is. she's like our own personal comedian. being the older sibling, i tend to play mother sometimes rather than big sister. i just try to be there for her and give advice anyway i can. my sister is just like my mom...can't tell them anything because their always right. dang Virgos, i tell ya! growing up, we were very close and did everything together, but as i got older and starting making friends...beanie was left be hide. now as young adults, we've become closer again and talk almost everyday. its nice being able to have someone you shared a childhood with and, laugh at all of the memories. i couldn't imagine being the only child...
she is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. she is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. she is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you smiling, even in the dark. she is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. - Barbara Alpert
