This IS a knitting blog.

Posted by Allison on August 2, 2007

However, yesterday I went for dinner with my siblings. So I’m talking about that…I am the youngest child (shocked i’m sure) and the girl. When I was growing up my brothers spoiled me rotten. I was never disappointed on a birthday or Christmas, the ‘boys’ would make special trips home just because I wanted to see them. Last night we all had a dinner together for the first time in years. One of the things that I’ve learned through my journey as a foster parent is that sibling relationships must be taught, they are not automatic at all. I always assumed that everyone had the type of sibling relationships that I did. Not to say that there aren’t times when I want to stick a rusty fork in my eye than go to a family dinner but on the whole we are very close. Our children have something we never had, close cousins. They all ‘have each others back’ in a way that they are more like siblings than cousins. My older brothers are 15 and 13 years older than me but we are very close. My brother Craig is only 4 years older than me and the sweetest man I’ve ever met. Here we are after dinner last night. Note I’m wearing the ‘holy shit i look skinny’ jeans again. I’m never taking the damn things off!

    The top is very flattering too. You look damned good!

    Is Craig the one next to you? Is he available? Would you trade him for sock yarn?

    Absolutely I would trade him for sock yarn! Are you kidding me? Sadly he’s not available…well, not sadly for his wife, but sadly for my stash.

    Do you like how I’ve learned to Paris Hilton stand in my pictures now…and people say she’s useless…..

    Thanks sis, every now and again you say something that makes me almost forget why I used to chase out of the house and down the street.
