BFF Sisters

My daughters are very close in age (one year and three weeks to be precise). The small difference was a struggle for me when they were babies and toddlers; but the advantages of their being born close far outweighs the disadvantages. One of the pros is definitely the fact that they have become best friends. My girls have done many things together in their short lifetime. For example, they have played dolls together, sat on the sofa and read together, watched Pokemon together, swum together, learned TaeKwonDo together.

I love watching them walk together holding a conversation that no one else can hear. My hope as I watch them is that no person ever comes between them and breaks the strong bond of their relationship. They are a support to one another and I would love them to continue supporting one another in their adult lives.

Do you have a close bond with your sibling?

  1. It is good to have someone to grow up with. My two older sons have about the same age difference as your daughters and they are best friends-enemies, too. 🙂 The older one thinks that the younger one is the same competence as he is all the time. 🙂


  2. Daughters are the best friend…. If you have a sister you don’t need a friend, I heard this in somewhere else. Blessing and Happiness to you ALL, dear Colline. Thanks and Love, nia


    1. This has been true of my daughters Nia. They have never needed other people to be their playmate. Instead they have always had a playmate living with them 🙂


  3. What a fantastic image, Colline, and how wonderful that your daughters are so close. I have three younger brothers and a younger sister. We’re all friends, but not close because I moved away while they were still growing up. Now that there isn’t so much physical distance between us, I’m hoping we’ll all get to know each other better. In fact, one of my brothers (and his wife) will be arriving for a visit with us today. Yay! 🙂


    1. I am sure that now you are closer you will get to spend more time together – especially if you get on well with the people they have married 🙂


  4. That is lovely to see. One of the most heartbreaking things is when two close siblings fall out and ruin what could be the closest of friendships lastiing a lifetime. My wife and her sister delight in one another’s company daily – though there was a 13-year age difference, in their case.


    1. I love seeing close relationships like that in the older generations – it means that other people have not broken their friendships with hurtful words and actions.


  5. Me and my brother are a year old apart, but we don’t get along at all. But it’s generally, mostly like that with brothers as much as two sisters. Love the ending of the post, Colline.


  6. impressive and emotional, Colline… I can’t answer your question, ’cause I’m fille-unique… but I’ve had strong and lasting bonds with the same friends for decades…
