Best Big Littles In The Game

Best Big Littles In The Game

What it's like having two littles.

Being a sister in a sorority comes with a lot of responsibilities and tasks. I'm a sophomore in the sorority Alpha Epsilon Phi and the new pledge class was just recently initiated on Thursday, April 5th. This is a very exciting time for all chapters at the University of Delaware. Besides becoming a new member of your sorority, there are many other fun events that take place.

One being big little reveal.

During the pledging of Alpha Epsilon Phi, the new pledge class asks the pledge class above them to go on "girl dates." Girl dates signify the bonding and getting to know the new sisters and each other. Girl dates can be one on one or in groups and can happen anywhere such as Perkins Student Center, coffee cafes on Main Street, and anywhere else on campus.

After a few weeks of girl dating and getting to know the new pledge class, the girls get a feel of who they want as their little, or in some cases "littles." Sometimes, if the incoming pledge class is bigger than the one above, there are twins. This year, the new pledge class has 11 more girls, meaning five sets of twins.

After going on many girl dates myself, I was lucky enough to find not one, but two girls who I met and hit it off with. I spent time with the both of them separately, and couldn't imagine not having both of them as my littles. I couldn't even form a thought if they were someone else's littles. No thank you!

I talked to my big Sydney Gropack, g-big, Sydney Cohen, and their pledge moms for some advice. My g-big is a twin herself and gave some inspiration words to me. "Whatever you choose will be great! If you have two littles, it will be double the fun! You'll have two girls who look up to you and that's so nice! But if you only want one then that's also okay! Either way it'll be amazing so just go with your gut." After hearing this, I put a halt to my indecisiveness and went for what I wanted, these two amazing, sweet, and perfect young ladies: Daniela Carillo and Victoria Sedgh.

Most others who are about to become bigs only want one little. Yes, it is nice to put your focus on only one person, however, after going through this process I am happy they both looked up to me and loved me enough to both put me first as their bigs. I have been thrilled since the day I found out. Having both of these girls makes this experience in the sorority ten times better.

Luckily, I did a great job because they love each other just as much as I hope they would, and maybe even more. They are beyond happy to have one another for a good laugh, a shoulder to cry on, and everything in between. I am such a beaming "mother" to have these perfect ladies as my littles, and will definitely be worth the ride.

A Thank You To My Boyfriend's Family

Because you are so important to him, you are important to me.

This one isn't easy to sit down and write because nothing I could say would do all of you justice in the way that I would hope I could. These are just words, but I hope that I am able to always show my thank you to you by treating him like the prince he is.

I can replay the moment of meeting each and every one of you all over and over in my head like it was yesterday. I was so extremely nervous every single time and I was trying to gather all the "right" things to say that would leave a good, first-lasting impression and that at the end of the day, you all would like me.

I think one of the most important basis and hopes in my relationship is that my significant other's family likes who I am. This is so important to me because whatever is important to him is equally important to me and your thoughts of me are crucial to our relationship.

The second I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed—overwhelmed with such a love. I had no idea at that point in time just how much you would all mean to me and how thankful I am for all of you!

Thank you for constantly making me laugh and feel at home.

Whenever I'm coming over for a family gathering or just to hang out, I know right off that I am walking into a world of laughter and good times are right beside that. You are all so entertaining and always have a good story to tell me. I can't name one time where I didn't feel like I was home.

And I appreciate the sweet, embarrassing photos and stories about my boyfriend that you all share with me! Even if it is by a photo, I have a glimpse of what his life has always been like thanks to each and every one of you individually.

Thank you for sharing your special moments in life with me.

You don't ever have to, but you invite me anyway. Whether it's just a family gathering, a birthday, or a holiday, I am thankful to have spent those times celebrating these moments in life alongside such amazing people. It's humbling and heartwarming to be a part of memories so unforgettable that you all share and that you have welcomed me to be a part of. They are days that I will never forget and have a place in my heart forever.

Thank you for always being there for him.

Since we have started dating, I have watched the way that you guys love him. I have watched the individual relationships and moments that you share with him make a difference in who he is. I have seen you all love and support him, no matter what he was doing.

With everything that comes along in life, this has been a simple reminder of an unconditional, loving, sacrificing family that is also the best support system. You are not only impacting him, but me, too.

Thank you for welcoming me in like your own.

Whenever you have to brave up and meet your significant other's family, I can say, for myself, that I didn't know what to expect. As I'm sure, none of you did when meeting me. Today, I catch myself wondering why I even worried in the first place. You all have welcomed me in your own ways and made me feel right at home. It is not always easy to do that with just anyone, but you have all taken the time to get to know me. And now I know that if I ever needed anything, I can call one of you.

Thank you for letting me date him.

I am most thankful for this. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving me a chance to show you all how important he is to me. I never thought that I would luck out and meet someone as special, kind, and wonderful as he is, but I did.

You have supported our relationship, given me a chance to love him, and welcomed me to new adventures in love and family. I have the upmost gratitude for each of you. You are the most wonderful, welcoming, and loving family. I am overjoyed to be able to experience just a glimpse of this life with him and with all of you.

5 Things You Understand if You Are The Baby of the Group

That's okay, have fun without me

If you are one of the youngest members of your friend group, then you know just how it feels when everyone starts turning 21. Here are 5 things that only the babies of the friend group understand.

1. Always the DD

Once your friends start turning 21 and decide to go out, guess who gets to pick them up? That's right. You. The one that still isn't 21.

2. The mom

You may be the youngest, but when your friends come back from a good night out, you are the most responsible and mature one of the group. You are the one that has to take care of them.

3. Being left out of things

Well, if you aren't 21, you can't go to that cool bar that everyone else is talking about or on that wine tour.

4. Home alone on the weekend

While everyone else gets to go out and have fun on the weekend, you get to sit at home in your pajamas, watching TV. Sure this isn't a terrible thing, but when you are getting snapchats, and seeing your friends post about the fun they are having, you feel left out.

5. By the time you turn 21, your friends are over the hype.

You are finally 21 and you invite all of your friends. You are so excited, and they are excited for you, but after that night, you wanna go out and have fun, but your friends don't wanna go out as much because the hype of them turning 21 has faded.
