Growing up with Cate Stories
Hi everyone! I hope you all are well and had a great week. Before I begin with today's topic, I just want to fill you all in on something. In the coming weeks, something big is happening! I want to keep it a surprise until it happens, so make sure you are following @biglittlesisterblog on Instagram to keep up to date with what is going on! Let's get into today's topic.
The past couple of weeks I have talked about some hard, difficult aspects of my life, so today I just wanted to keep it fun and write about two of my favorite stories from when me and Cate were younger. At dinner the other night, we were telling stories, so I thought it would be fun to share them!
The first story is from when me and Cate went to Boston for the first time our parents. We had just stopped in Faneuil Hall to try 5 different types of clam chowder, and were walking out into the street. There was a street performer doing acrobatics, so we stopped to watch for a little bit because I had never seen one. Obviously there was a stream of people going by, but before this lady had even walked by us, I saw her staring at Cate. She was walking towards us and staring at Cate very intently. Just as she walked directly in front of Cate, Cate got excited and kicked her legs out, and kicked this lady right in the calf. The lady was completely taken aback and shocked by what just happened, and practically ran away. Now, did we think this was funny. We were all laughing because it was like Cate saw her staring and was like I will show her, and bam kicked her in the calf. I think this story shows Cate's personality really well, and it always makes me laugh.
The next story is one of my favorite sister moments from when we were younger. One afternoon when both Cate and I were home, I decided to secretly give her a make over. I probably was 8 or 9 at the time, and Cate was probably around 14. My mom did not know I was doing this, so we gave her a surprise. I went around the house and gathered: one of my mom's long stretchy dresses, makeup, and my hair stuff, and took Cate into our play room. The first thing I did was put the dress on her, over her clothes, while she was still in her chair, and I still do not know how I did that, but I did. I proceeded to then put eyeshadow, blush, lip gloss, mascara, and bronzer on her as well. Cate does not sit still, so I remember makeup being a challenge, but again I figured it out. Cate never had had her makeup done before, so I was very proud of myself, and excited to see her looking different. I finally can remember putting her hair down, which she never does, and I thought that was exciting too. I showed my mom by wheeling her out into the kitchen without saying a word, and when my mom saw, she was shocked. It was another funny moment, and that memory still makes me super happy because it was such a fun hour together.
I love these types of little moments and stories with Cate, so I wanted to share them. It is so important to hold on to these positive memories and stories, because when things can get hard, you have to remember that everything will be ok. Reminding myself of these stories when things get hard with Cate make all the difference. I hope you all have a great weekend and week ahead. Thanks for reading this week.
