Growing up with siblings is an experience, to say the least. When the age gap is close to 15 years, and you’re the oldest, you develop the special bond of watching your younger sibling grow up. When he was 10 years old, my younger brother decided he wanted to help me can strawberry jam. He squished the strawberries with a grip that only young boys have. As he did so, he looked at me with delight and amazement. I took sisterly pride in his sense of accomplishment when he put jam on the toast. He was grinning ear to ear and so was I!
