Søskende / Siblings
Det var så hyggeligt! Der var en del af familien og det var dejligt vejr, så vi kom endda i haven.
Der var endda 2 fra den yngste generation. Det ER så sjovt med de to søskende. Lillebror er kommet op og gå, og han følger sin søster. Overalt. Sådan er det jo med børn!
Jeg plejer at sige, at søskende giver sociale kompetencer. Man lærer at der findes andre mennesker i verden, man tester grænser og man tager hensyn.
This Sunday, I went to Northern Jutland for my sister-in-laws birthday. As a surprise.
It was so nice! A bit of the family was there, and the weather was nice enough for the garden.
There were even company from the youngest generation. It so SO much fun with the 2 siblings. Little brother started walking, and he follows his sister. Everywhere. Kids are like that!
I usually say that siblings come with social competences. You learn how there are other people in the world, you test the borders and you learn to take care.
Mon ikke det ændrer sig? Tænker, hans tålmodighed bliver så prøvet efterhånden at han kan sige fra.
Nå ja - og jeg har efterhånden set dem så mange gange, at de kan huske mig. Det er nu meget hyggeligt!
He hasn't grown big enough to make him a "threat", so she doesn't get especially angry. He isn't angry, either, but lives with being pushed away and having the toys taken. (Or having his sister landing on his head when she is sliding down again.)
I guess it will change eventually? His patience will be tested enough to make him complain.
Oh - and by now, I've seen them so many times that they actually remember me. It is really fun!
Nu, hvor vi er voksne, har vi det utroligt hyggeligt. Det er skønt at have nogen at dele baggrund og familie med. Nogen, man kan slappe af med og stole på. Nogen, der bare bliver glad, når man kommer.
(Kagen fik iøvrigt blomster som pynt, fordi der ikke var nok flødeskum. Men det lignede absolut ikke et uheld!)
Relationships with siblings are strange. As a kid, my big brother drove me crazy when he was always teasing me, and never wanted to be seen publicly with me.
Now, as adults, we really enjoy each others company. It is wonderful sharing the past and family with someone. Someone you can relax with and trust. Someone who is happy if you come visiting.
(The cake had flowers as decoration, because there wasn't enough whipped cream. But it didn't look like an emergency!)
