I will never forget the day our older sister and I went to mom's sonogram while she was pregnant with you to find out your gender. I may have only been 3 years old at the time, but I will always remember how hard I cried when the doctor said you were going to be a boy. I wanted to have a little sister so badly. Obviously, I got over myself.
I know I don't say it a lot, or really at all, but I am beyond blessed to be your big sister. Even though we may get on each other's nerves, say things we don't mean out of anger, and sometimes even get physical with each other.
We do things to purposely piss each other off because we find it amusing. That's just what siblings do, we like to get under each other's skin. But no matter what, we'll always be family.
There's something I always say, that I'm the only person who is allowed to pick on you. That, and our other siblings. But if anyone else were to pick on you in front of me, they will feel my wrath.
You have probably realized by now that I am very protective of you. I will always have something to say about your friends, potential girlfriends, your grades in school, practically anything. And it's only because I want you to be the best that you can be.
There's no doubt that my being away at college has brought us closer because I'm no longer around every day. But our constant FaceTime calls that last for hours and your nonstop messages of funny memes are something that I always look forward to while I'm away. It also makes me cherish our time together, even more, when I do come home.
So the next time I want you to run to Walmart with me at 10:30 at night, come with me to pick up food or make you take off your headphones and jam to music with me in the car, just remember it's because those are the moments I will always remember. And whether or not you think so, those are the moments you'll remember too.
