    omg, I went from thinking, aww she wants to live w/ her parents, to oh no, poor Sara making her only wish about Melissa 😦 she’s not that mean, is she?
    love her answers, she’s so sweet!

    • Sadly, she can be that mean 😦 Sara is just one big annoyance to her most of the time… but she CAN get along with her when she chooses to. Unfortunately the mean outweighs the nice.

    • Thank you!
      You should do this with your kids, too! I’m going to try and remember to do this every year, to see how their answers change.

  3. I think she would get along with my daughter just fine.

  4. What a fun idea!

    The answer that touched me the most was the last answer. Have you shown this to Melissa?

    Sara is obviously a very sensitive child, very positive and happy but there are those images that you have captured that show a little pain behind those eyes. Mel might be surprised to know just how much her li’l sis looks up to her.

    • Melissa KNOWS how much Sara loves and adores her, but she just doesn’t care most of the time 😦
      There was one time when Sara was little… maybe about 2 or 3 years old. The kids were sitting at the dinner table, and I was in the kitchen when I heard Sara say “Sissy, you’re my hero” ♥
      Melissa just refuses to realize what she’s missing out on, she could TOTALLY take advantage of Sara. She’ll find out when Sara is a little older, or when they’re adults, and Sara has finally had enough and wants nothing more to do with her.

    have u tried to stop it? my kids get in a TON of trouble if I catch them being mean to one another (or if one tattles on the other, lol) not only do they get punished but I make them apologize, hug each other and say I love you which ALWAYS break the tension, b/c they can’t do this w/o laughing.

    But, I also realize girls are way different than boys and unfortunately, much meaner. But we have a code so to speak around here and meaness is never tolerated. they might not always love/like each other but they will at least be respectable, in my presence anyway, lol.

    • Oh yes, Melissa always gets in trouble when she’s mean, and she get’s punished. The result is that she’s mad at me, and she’s still mean to Sara. Forget hugging her, and if she had to say I love you, that would surely kill her right then and there 😛
      I should send her to you for a few months, she could certainly learn something from your boys!

      And then there’s the flipside of the coin, where they can be in the same room together all day and I never hear them fight (Sara will tell me if Melissa is mean), or Melissa is helping Sara with something without me having to ask her to do it, or we’re at the store and Melissa decides to buy Sara a candy bar and doesn’t ask her to pay her back when we get home.
      TEENAGERS!!!!

    This is so sweet. I love this idea! I may steal it. 🙂

    28. April, 2011 at 15:19

    • You should definitely steal it! (I did, too 😉 )

  7. This is very cute. I wonder if the answers would be interesting from my teenagers. Sisters definitely fight, my two can be like oil and water, then switch back to being truly kind to one another.

  8. I’m always forgetting those interviews, I guess it’s never too late. I’m always trying to convince my girls how much fun they could have if they treated each other like friends. Sometime they do, but when they fight, it drives me crazy. I could totally imagine my younger one saying the same thing about her big sis.

  9. LOL… Gotta love where she wants to live when she grows up… Now there’s some sense for you… 😉

    you stole this idea from someone? I wonder who that could be 😉

    29. April, 2011 at 22:06

    • Hmm.. can’t really remember… I think it was someone named Doreen?? 😉
