Mothering is Worth the Effort: Motherhood Moment #3

Mothering is Worth the Effort

by Jennifer Andersen

Nobody can make Sydney smile like her big brother.  Every shared moment solidifies their relationship- their undeniable bond.  Now I watch as they begin to play with each other, instead of next to each other.  I listen to Sydney exclaim “of course I do Owen!” when he asks her if she would like to play on the fire tower out back.

Her heart already knows the answer when she asks “Owie, can you help me with this?”

As with all siblings, they have lots of disagreement and discrepancy.  I am frequently called upon to help them work through things.

It is moments like the one captured above though, that remind me that my efforts are worthwhile.  Learning better ways of helping my children connect is encouraging them to become friends.  I think sibling friendship is one of the greatest gifts I can give my children.
