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?
