Two Peas

If  I could pick one thing I heart the most are days when my brother and I can spend one-on-one time together. This weekend since my parents were out of town, Josh came to spend the night with us and as usual, we had a blast just the two of us. Despite the fifteen year age difference between us, we are like two peas in a pod. We played Wii all afternoon, munched on homemade salsa and tortilla chips (extra hot – our favorite!) and savored our favorite cupcakes from the local cupcake shop. He introduced me to some of his favorite shows and reads and I introduced him to some of mine. I know he’s no longer my “little” brother, but I hope he never gets too old or too “cool” to spend some time with his sis.

This is so sweet! I wish my brothers and I were so close. We love each other and get along really well, but we couldn’t be more different in terms of our hobbies, likes/dislikes, etc. I hope you get more one-on-one time with Josh soon! :)

What fun! And I’m pretty sure, brothers named Josh are the best … EVER! Also, for the record, he’ll always be your baby brother. Even when he’s over thirty … and towers above you … and has a kid of his own … it just can’t be helped! :)

Awww, this is so nice, especially considering your age difference! My brother and I are almost 5 years apart and we love eachother, but we’re completely different, so we won’t have the same interests. Stay close to your family!

And I had homemade salsa this weekend, too! Yum!

Aw that’s great! My brother and I are closer in age, so we fought most of our younger lives, but now we’re much better friends. It’s such a great feeling! And what cute pictures!

Awww! It’s a totally different relationship between siblings when there is a big age difference. My brother and I are 10 years apart and my sister and I are 13 years apart, and it’s really cool now that they’re getting older. Happy Monday!

Awww, this is so sweet! I feel the same way when I get to spend time with my brother. It’s such a fun time, a gift, and definitely to be treasured. Also, kudos to you on the homemade salsa/tortilla chips! That’s impressive :)

So adorable! Younger siblings will always be younger than you, so I don’t think he’ll ever get too ‘old’. Glad the two of you had such a great time together! As an only child, I always wished I had a brother or sister… sigh.

Sounds like you two had a ball! How awesome that you two get along so well, my eldest brother is 11 years older and we’re more alike than the other two. BTW- I am so glad you’re liking the Hunger Games trilogy! Catching Fire was my favorite of the three :):) I hope you like it too!

viv @ the eclectic life March 21, 2011 at 3:22 pm

AHHHH!!! You guys are so adorable I can hardly stand it. It is so awesome seeing how great of a sister you are and I love the relationship y’all have. I’m sure you are so influential in his life in the most positive way and I’m so thankful you shared this part of your life with us! So sweet.

Maddy! This has got to be the cutest thing ever. I’ve always wanted a younger sibling to have these days with. I’m all smiles.

Mindy March 21, 2011 at 9:38 pm

what a great day! I have an older brother, and we dont always get along. but, when we do, and when we see each other (he lives in CA), it’s really nice. Your post is exactly what I hope my girls will say about each other in the future….

Ellie March 21, 2011 at 10:05 pm

That is so great! I’m an only child and I’ll admit I’ve always wished to have a sibling to spend days with!
Have a great day :)

Thank you so much Maddy for the congrats over at Urban Scarlet. I am definitely one lucky girl. Oh, and I love that you have such a great relationship with your brother. I used to beg my mom for a little brother and I was always sad that I never got one {so I married into a family with four boys to make up for it. LOL}!!

The memories that you are making with your “baby” brother will last a lifetime. I know that the feeling is mutual….he adores you. C’mon, who DOESN’T?!

Awww, too cute! I know personally, that it can be hard to have a connection with a sibling when there’s a big age gap, but I also know that as you both get older, it gets easier to find ways to connect. I think it’s awesome that you’ve always had such a connection with your brother, and I’m sure you will always be his super cool big sister. Cuz you’re awesome like that. Oh and start watching for a special delivery :)
