Is it just a thing that siblings are AWFUL to each other?  Like is this just normal?  Because, and I know I’m super biased, my kids are some of the nicest people on the planet.  I’ve watched Quinn share candy with friends without hesitation.  I’ve watched Gavin hold doors open for people.  Piper will give the biggest smiles to people and melt their hearts . . . . and then at home they try to kill each other.

What is that about???

I was thinking, probably because it’s the holidays, about the time when I was little and my brothers (who are 5 and 8 years older than me) convinced me that they put a camera in my light fixture so they knew what I was getting everyone for Christmas.  Holy crap, that sounds super creepy . . . . my brothers weren’t (aren’t) creeps . . . just jerks.

Or maybe I’m just focusing on the wrong things.  I mean when you live with anyone they are bound to make you a little nuts.  I think that’s actually how you know you want to marry someone. Take a road trip with them and if you don’t want to kill them at the end it is meant to be.

Sorry, side track.

Maybe I should be focusing on all the moments that they look out for each other.  Like when we go to Trader Joes and my kids ask for an extra sucker for the kid who isn’t with us. And they actually give it to that kid when we get home.  Or Piper takes a half hour at the doctor after her check up picking out the perfect sticker for Quinn.  . . . . . And not on Piper shoving her sister and saying, “Get out of my room!”  Good sentence, Pips!  You punk.

And to be fair  . . . . my brothers did buy me my first DSLR camera and did 1.2 million other amazing things for me throughout childhood and into adulthood.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour, scooped and leveled
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • powdered sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon mats .
  2. Beat the sugar, butter, and peanut butter together. Then beat in the vanilla and the flour. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop the cookies into one inch dough balls. Place approximately two inches apart on baking sheets (if you bake in batches make sure the sheets are cool before adding more dough).
  4. Bake for approximately 18 minutes or until the edges just begin to turn golden brown. Be careful not to overtake. Allow to cool for five minutes on baking sheet, then roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely and then roll in powdered sugar again. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.


Your butter should be soft enough that you can dent it with your finger easily but not so soft that you can push all the way through. Scoop your flour into a measuring cup with a spoon and then level off. Do not scoop directly into the measuring cup from the flour container, you will end up with too much flour that way.

    Sibling lover is when your twin brother bounces his crib to yours every night to crawl into your crib and sleep with you! My twin brother had bolts on his crib when we were babies/toddlers and he would jump up and down in his crib until it was next to mine and crawl into my crib and we would snuggle every night

    My memory involves me and my sister, and we were adults. In 2003 between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I had to have my 22-year old cat put down. Carol knew how difficult this was going to be for me. She drove 25 miles to my home and drove me to the vet so that I could hold CT on the way, and I could hold the box he was in on the way back home. This is one of the nicest things she ever did for me. Carol passed away in February 2015, and I still miss her very much.

    My brother, despite being 4 years younger than me, always had my back growing up like a big brother might. Anytime my friends and I would argue, he’d “protect me” and side by me. It was adorable and we’re still close as adults – something I cherish every day!

    My sister and I are 18-months apart. We grew up doing everything together. As much as we loved each other, we fought some pretty good fights ????. I was just recalling all the windows, doors and toilet (don’t ask) that we broke fighting when we were kids hehehe. My poor parents. And now we are best friends!!!

    Bouncing your crib across the room is just the best! This past week my sister (64) “bounced her crib” in a 6 hour drive to help me with a very overwhelming and emotional move. She has always, always been the best friend a person could have, and I would truly be lost without her.
    Our mother (90) and her sister connect each and every morning at 7:00 when Aunt Eenie rings mom’s phone twice and mom rings twice back. Special love!

    One of my favorite sibling memories is from my childhood. I was probably 5 or 6 years old and my brother was in the Navy. He’s 14 years older than me. I always missed him terribly, but especially at the holidays. My mom told me he wouldn’t be home for Christmas, which made me cry. Well, later that day, I found a cowboy hat on the floor in the living room. I figured I’d wrap it up for my brother, lol! Little did I know it was actually HIS hat and he was home for Christmas! It made me so incredibly happy!! We’re no longer close, but I hold this memory dear to my heart.

    My sister is in high school and works as well. She absolutely loves to ‘spoil’ my kids; it’s very touching to see her do things so selflessly for others. Her love definitely shines through.

    My brother and I are 2 yrs apart. When I was almost 3 our mom had to get a job, she had a neighbor babysit me and took my brother to a nursery school. We were both very upset since we had never been apart from each other or our away from our Mom. My brother ran away from nursery school and found his way to neighbors house where I was. When he was asked “why he did that? ” he said because he didn’t want me to be scarced! Luckily for me 56 yrs later he still is my protector.
