My little sister Capri is often accused of being a ‘mini Cami’. It started when she was born, as our baby pictures were indistinguishable, and has been happening ever since. She is 12 years younger than me, and I imagine it gets pretty annoying to always be compared to someone twice your age, who you can’t really relate to because when she was your age, you were a newborn.
Of course I’m flattered because she is a cutie, super good-natured, and always cheerful (except during her teenage melodramas, which don’t last long at all). She is probably way better behaved and much more mature than I remember being at 13, but I don’t mind if others remember differently. (though I am almost certain my melodramas lasted much longer).
I’d never really dwelled on how alike we were, but today I was looking through pictures from my trip home and came across these two pictures taken one day apart:
Capri is laying on the muddy ground in the middle of clearing trees, when she got tired of working.
I am laying on the sidewalk of a very public outdoor mall after driving two hours to get there and shopping and not eating for SIX HOURS. (ok watching other people shop for six hours.)
Turns out we ARE alike. Both of us lay on the ground in completely inappropriate places when we are tired of whatever we are doing.
Side note: I texted that picture to Nate after Skyler took it. His reply:
To which Skyler replied, a bit incredulously, “you do that when you’re hungry!?”
