When we had children 12 years apart I thought we would escape the sibling rivalry. I was naive! It amazes me how much Josh and Hannah bicker between the two of them. He irritates her, she irritates him. I must say, however, that Hannah always seems to have the upper hand.
Last night, we were watching Snow White, one of Hannah’s favorite movies. In one of the singing scenes, Dopey is playing the drums. Without missing a beat, Hannah points at the TV and proclaims, “Josh is playing drums.” I didn’t think Hannah could think of something like that at 2 years old. I am nervous about how she will be as she gets older:)
Sibling Rivalries are nothing new. They have been happening since Cain and Abel. There was Joseph and his brothers. Jacob and Esau. Many more throughout the history of man. This will never be changed until we get to Heaven. Oh how sweet that will be!
