My brother is 14 years older than me and my sister is 10 years older than me. So, although I sometimes get stressed that my children are only 21 months apart and they act up a lot, I love the fact that they will grow up together. My siblings were more like parents to me, especially my sister. Now, my sister's daughter is almost 16 and we have so much in common. She acts just like me, although I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing sometimes! haha Jackson will turn 6 in August and will be in the first grade and Lauren will be in 4 yr old preschool this year. Where has time gone? Just yesterday I was pregnant with Lauren and Debbi and I were talking on yahoo messenger everyday. It seems like yesterday. Matter-of-fact, the past 10 years seem like yesterday to me. The first 16 years of my life seemed like forever and since then..well wow!! We definately all need to cherish the here and now because the next time you think about it, it might be 10 years later!
