I suspect that s’daughter Shelby is the tiniest bit relieved to be back in the peace, quiet and roomy abundance of her dorm life. Here is a photo of what she looked like all weekend:
Everybody loves hanging out with Shelby. I am no exception. I like to think that I give her a little more breathing room than these two. I am a first born with one significantly younger sibling. I need more breathing room, myself. These second and subsequent children — I’m not sure they care. They seem to enjoy being one on top of the other.
When you are the first born with a significantly younger sister, you’re not very good at being near anyone for very long. It gets a little claustrophobic. Air, air . . . I need more air.
