The Spare

17 May

She is the bane of The Heir’s existence. At least when it comes to clothes and shoes and hair accessories. She is absolutely crazy one minute and a sour puss the next. As is the case with most girls her age, if it doesn’t benefit her in some way she wants nothing to do with it. She’s gotten used to no longer being the baby and at times I think she misses being the youngest. But only for a brief minute. She is the most aggressive lacrosse player on the field and there’s no doubt that she will one day surpass her older sister. But, we’ll keep that between ourselves.  She doesn’t show it and would be loathe to admit it but I know she loves her sisters fiercely and unconditionally. I think she’s going to turn me into an alcoholic before she graduates from high school. She was my little shadow when she was tiny and now all she wants to do is grow up.  I haven’t the slightest idea what she wants to do with her life but I have no doubt in my mind it is going to be something absolutely amazing.
