A Letter to Future Sippy Cup (23)

Hey kid,

When we found out we were having your sister, I knew instinctively that you would be an amazing older brother.

What I was not prepared for was just how much you would help us with her.

Because of you, your sister knows how to count to ten in both English and Spanish.

Because of you, your sister enjoys reading books.

Because of you, your sister's vocabulary continues to expand at an advanced pace.

Because of you, your sister knows to say "Please" and "Thank You" and "Excuse Me".

By the time you read this, you both will have probably forgotten about these smaller moments in her development.

But I hope she realizes just how lucky she is to have you as an older brother.

And I hope you realize just how lucky I am to have you as a son.
