Sibling bonds are an interesting study, aren't they? My Brenna is forever frustrated with her brother, who "ruins everything". And at two, he really does. We try to balance her need to be kind with her right to have some space and time to do the things she wants without her brother destroying it. It is a tricky balance, that's for sure.
There is love, then there is a general dislike.
I can remember feeling the same way about my own brother and sister.

I agree Omaha--I can remember feeling the same way with my own brother and sister. Sometimes, too, even though we're grown, those same old patterns and rivalries rear their heads!
