My sister is a keeper

personal,2 December 2015

This week I’m fighting a cold. My throat is soar and I’m coughing a lot. So annoying and not at all how I remembered it to be. Whatever happened to staying in bed all day, watching movies and snacking on yummy feel-good treats all day long? I became a mother. That’s what happened ;). No time to feel sorry for myself, and definitely no mercy or understanding from my two year old. It’s go-go-go all the time, and since she quit her naps I feel like I’m sitting down for the first time at 7 pm when she goes to bed. I also hate not being able to play, sing and goof around with her (not to even mention kissing and hugging), so I have to come up with other ways to entertain her.

Luckily, my extremely missed, beloved and favorite big sister is back from a four week long trip to Australia and Asia. This pretty much means we’ve been hanging impatiently outside her door way too early in the morning, for her and her children to entertain Greta, cook for us and offer my child a space to make a mess of. It only feels ok because it’s family, and that’s why I can’t even describe how happy I am to have sisters to always feel comfortable around, and who I know are always there for me whenever I need it. Being one month a part felt like an eternity and I hope it won’t happen again in a long while, preferably ever.

    Must be hard being sick and at the same time you are never off-the duty of being mom. It must be such a great thing to have a good support system nearby by, in case of you need them. Being adult you truly understant that gift of having siblings and being close terms with them!!
