When I Was Little

My brother was able to scan a picture of our family when we were all so very young. There I am, dead center in the photo. I took my role as big sister so seriously. I was excited to have 2 brothers–they are 13 months apart, and often called them “my little ones”. See how prim and proper I was being? Oh what a proud big sis—and what cute little brothers. Of course my folks look so young and glamorous~before we filled their lives with all kinds of excitement and challenges!! Just wanted to share….

    I was the mid-kid, but we three were only 32 months apart. I have a sister and a brother. The sis is 20 months older, and the bro is 12 months and 5 days younger. My mom says we were a handful, and i am sure she was right!
    How many years between you and your brothers?

    What a beautiful family! And you look like such a sweet child. No wonder you are such a sweet blogger friend now.

    • Kate Kresse says:

      thanks so much Dor. My parents look so gorgeous and glamorous! My brothers and I definitely aged them over the years :-). But in general, I was a sweet child. I was never jealous of my brothers or cousins. I was delighted to share and be a part of the group. I was first born on both sides of the family, and was honored when cousins and siblings came along. I just knew it was my role to be inclusive with them and kind. That facet of my soul/personality is a gift from God. 🙂

    As a big sister myself, I understand perfectly. So cute and charmingly described!

  9. What a precious photo! You do look like you were taking your role seriously, Kate. Firstborn through and through. I love to look at photos of my family. I think having had a happy childhood makes that possible. I think it is the same for you, and if so, aren’t we most fortunate! D

      I had a delightfully happy childhood. Even in difficult and challenging times, my parents always taught us to greet the day and troubles with joy, hope, and faith. I was lucky and blessed. I need to try to get ahold of all the old photos and scan them somehow. would love to have them in my computer or at a photo storing site rather than thousands of miles away from here!
