Although sometimes being the little sister had its moments of being a pain cause I couldnt do some of the things my big sisters did, most of the time the feeling of being the baby sister is one of my most cherished feelings. The times that I was included in their plans were some of the best times in my childhood memories. When they had boy/girl parties, I was on cloud nine when I got to be included (even if it was for a little while). I remember one party that rather vividly because I probably would have cried and hurt a lot more if I hadnt been soooo embarrassed. The boys at the party were all holding the edge of a big blanket and the girls would climb on the blanket and they would toss her in the air and catch her. I was so incredibly cool that night because I got to climb up on the blanket and let the cool boys throw me through the air. As little as I was I flew and I laughed and laughed and then I landed on the blanket and hit my chin on my knee. Damn near knocked me out, but I was too embarrassed to cry. That was the end of that party for me! Even though I was too young to always join in with my sisters, there was never a doubt that I belonged with my sisters. Always have and always will.
