Sisters are Like Bras: Close to Your Heart and There for Support


Yesterday we went to Target (pronounced Tar-shay) to purchase the first bra for D1. When we came home, this was the exchange:

D2: Hmmm, you look different.

D1 (dripping with her usual sarcasm): Gee. I wonder why.

D2: You just look weirder because now you have boo boos.

  1. For me, growing up with sisters was the best and the worst.
    The best because I had built in best friends.
    The worst because on Sundays there was never enough pantyhose and earring backs to go around!

    Thanks for coming to Hot Fruita Moms! Hope to see you there again.
    I can't wait for my next visit to Utah, so I can eat at Bajio. I can say,
    "I know the owner! She commented on my blog!"
    Woot!

  5. That is too funny! Now I'm wishing my darling daughter had a sister who would embarrass her right out of her shyness about such things. She comes home from school every day to tell me about her latest crush, but she cannot even say the word "deoderant" out loud. And when I do she gets all embarrassed. What I wouldn't give for a frank talk about boo boos--or anything else regarding maturity or personal hygiene.

    (Here is an example.)

  6. I have to admit that sometimes my little sister was and still is sometimes like the underwire that comes out and pokes you!!

    I came across you from compulsive writer and have enjoyed your blog! I was born and raised and still live in Lincoln. Did you grow up in Omaha? What was your maiden name?

    and I have heard much about Bajio in blogland! Congrats!

  8. I love sisters... Debbie, do you remember when MY sister stood up at my OTHER sisters dinner party the night before her wedding.. and during a time when she was SUPPOSED to say something about her sister who was getting married... she expressed her gratitude that in our family one sister (the one getting married) could kiss another sister's (mine) husband and we were all OK with it? Yes... sisters are the best! I LOVE MINE!!

  10. Where the heck did you go? Did my heathen ways scare you in to more missionary work?

  11. Boo boos? Love it.

    My brothers used to tell me I had mosquito bites. Then they used to say I had a hope chest--because I was still hoping for one. My one and only sister was (still is) a lot nicer, even if we're almost 14 years apart.

  12. Hi Debbie,

    Hope all is well - it's been strangely silent on your blog.

    Hoping to hear from you soon ...

    Cheers

    David

    I was born in Omaha but spent most of my growing up years in Sidney, Iowa. My Maiden name is Littlefield. My Dance for a Quarter Blog is about a guy from Lincoln.

    Thank you for noticing all the levels of such a short anecdote.

    I am guessing your ounger sister never referred to your budding body parts as boo boos in front of the entire family.

  18. Younger Sister Kim-
    Are you referring to me??? What?? Would I ever say something so witty and hilarious? Well, yes, probably so!

    You have scard me before - but not this time. I have not been doing any missionary work. When I do, - you'll be the first to know. Because I'll begin with knocking on your door.

  20. Julie,

    I never had older brothers or even one very close to my age - sounds like I missed out.

  21. David -
    My blog has been silent. If I had known how crazy busy this "vacation" was going to be I'd have left you all a note!

  22. PhaseOut Girl -
    All is well. Mickey and Minnie and Shamu just zapped all our energy. And pushing a stroller and coralling five children at theme parks for four days, and driving more miles than I can count - all left DH and I near exhaustion this week!

    Thank you! It is a famous - anonymous quote. But I'll take credit for picking it - just not writing it.

  24. While we were in California, we went shopping at Target for my only daughter's first bra. She looks different. I don't think she has worn it since we got home. I think she's afraid of what her brothers will say.

    Brothers can be ruthless. Luckily for D1 her beothers fall into the oblivious catgory.
