Some Sunday's Come Too Soon

She counts down the days until we get her again.

Every other week the countdown to Friday begins.

She keeps secrets just for her.

She has a special laugh that only she can get out of her.

They rarely fight, not wanting to waist a precious moment they have together.

Sunday usually comes too fast.

Before there were tears, now there is just silence.

She is growing up and dealing.

But it breaks my heart everytime.

To have a part-time sibling is hard on any child.

They had an awesome weekend.  Manicures, pedicures, dinner, movies, a night at Grandma's.

Then as quickly as it began it's over.

She is an only child again.

At least for 12 more days.

While I know this baby in my belly won't fill that void, I will force myself to believe that it will lessen the pain.

To have a sibling that will always be there.  Even when she may want him to go away.  He won't.

He will be here.  Everyday.  Every weekend.  Her brother.  Full time.

Oh how I wish I could make it different.

While I know it will make her strong in the end it still breaks my heart when the week without her sister begins.


  1. This is sweet. How lucky are you that they get along so well together.

  2. Awww...poor little things!! I never had that experience but I'm sure it's tough!

  3. It makes me so happy that they get along so well!!! I bet she will love the baby as much as her half sister! Though since they are both girls they can really relate to many things. e a wonderful little girl.

  4. It must be hard on them to be away from each other, but you must love watching their bond grow. How sweet.

  5. Awww! It's so great that they get along so well. She's gonna enjoy her brother! Maybe not at first, lol, cuz he'll appear pretty boring, but just wait lol.

  6. They are so lucky to have each other.

  7. u have an awesome family! Would love to follow you! check me out @ look forward to chatting
