Being A Little Sister


With being a little sister comes the responsibility of being the entertainment for your older siblings.  For my sister, I was a walking Barbie doll and, for my brother, I was a real life test dummy.  For both, I was a great subject for jokes and funny stories.  I was the thing they loved to torment the most, but I was also the one thing of theirs that no one else could touch.  No boys or bullies were allowed near me and I was always in safe hands when I was with them.  Nearly 20 years after I became their little sister and not much has changed.  Sure, we have our fights and our harsh jokes are said, but there is still plenty of love and laugh filled moments.  They will always be my big sister and my big brother and I will always be their baby sister.  I love them both so much and nothing can change that!
