Siblings Give Each Other Special Time

I am 5 years younger than my brother and we really didn’t have a lot in common after he passed the age of 10.

After I had my daughter I didn’t know whether I wanted to have a second child. I didn’t really understand the benefits of having a sibling. Life decided for me. My daughter is 4 now and my son is 3. I am gaining a much deeper appreciation for the sibling dynamic and for the effect of the listening I’ve begun to do with them.

I see them bicker and fight over toys and over my attention a lot , but they are also starting to announce to me that THEY are doing Special Time between them. What I notice about them being together in this way is that they are just really interested in each other, sharing, communicating and being really sweet. It’s beautiful.
