Brothers and sisters

Recently while reading an article in a magazine this question popped out at me: 

Do my brothers and sisters see me as being like a second mom or as a friend?

It can be hard because I am put in charge of my brothers and sisters a lot, baby-sitting them, etc. But, I'm wanting to work on not being a boss, encouraging and praising them, taking the time to play with them more, and be a big sister they can look up to as a true friend. Let me tell you one thing I've noticed for sure: a little bit of praise makes them so happy! It's amazing what a few encouraging words can do! :)

A recent water balloon fight!!! :))

This amazing brother of mine watched our 5 little brothers while us girls went on a trip for a week! More about that coming soon! ;)

My goodness, are they cute or what?!

She's such a sweetie!

And I'll end with this adorable baby sister of mine! Almost 5 months old already!!! :)
