This is why you have more kids...

Day 49.

I got to talk on the phone with my sister today, and we haven't had that kind of chat in a few days. You know, one where there is not anything too important to share, but we have plenty to say nonetheless. I love these conversations with her. Although she's 1000 miles away by car, she's only 10 numbers away by phone.

I am grateful for my sister.

Having her in my life in the capacity that I do, makes me realize she is the greatest gift my parents ever gave me. Our (attempt at) daily talks make me so grateful for our childhood together, and now our adult years together, going through this mothering thing together. It's an incredible thing to raise your children parallel to your own sister raising hers. You get to talk about how you were both brought up, and weigh in on what we should do the same/different. It's fun times, and don't worry, mom and dad - usually we're trying to figure out how we can be like you. :)

Thank you, Lara, for the person that you are. The mother that you are. The incredible friend you are to me. I am extremely blessed and thank God for our past, our present, and our future together, raising our children as best we can.
