You may know that I’ve been a Big Sister for more than a decade.
You may not know that this girl is now a young woman. She’s smart, funny, wise, sensible and she also happens to be drop dead gorgeous. And yesterday she brought over a new boyfriend. And he’s a keeper.
I don’t get to experience these Mom-ish things outside of my relationship with her. And yesterday I found myself getting to know him and them together and watching how they interact. And I felt like a Mom! I want her to be happy but I think I might rather that she was miserable if it meant separating herself from a guy who wasn’t good enough for her. She has to be treated well, that’s not up for discussion. And it seems that she is being respected and adored. That’s all I ask! Isn’t it what any Mom would want for her “kid”?
