One of These Things…
This picture of Sunshine and Moonshine going to homecoming showcases their differences better than any story I could tell. You would think being raised in the same house they would have some similarities, but Moonshine professes to everyone she meets that she’s the anti-Sunshine.
And as a second born daughter, I completely get it. I understand her wanting to make her own mark and being her own person, but it’s so purposeful sometimes that it can be hurtful. Sometimes things are said, as I’m sure in all families, that are just mean.
I confess I’ve said more than once that they’ll grow up and never speak again, but then sometimes they’re hanging out on the couch getting along and I think I might have done something right.
However, currently as I write this, Sunshine and her friends are upstairs watching six hours of the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice, while Moonshine is downstairs playing Rock Band with her boyfriend.
I’m sure there might be some similarities in the future, but in the immortal words of Rodney King, Can’t we all just get along?
