Day Sixteen

A picture of someone who inspires you

Oh these brothers of mine.

I was completely obsessive about school starting at age 5. I can't tell you what I put my family through for 13 years of my life, obsessing over every single homework assignment and test ever since I was a baby. Tears were involved at least a couple times a week from 1st grade till I graduated high school, because I had to be "the best". Do you know what I think? I think a lot of this had to do with the fact that I wanted to eventually be smarter than Kodi. I don't know if he knows this, but it's true.

And growing up, I always wanted to be as cool as Acey. I loved being "Acey's little sister". That's probably (definitely) why I cut my hair in a bowl cut when I was 7. I wanted to look just like him. As I got older I wanted all of his friends to have crushes on me. [I eventually found out I was too good for them].

But even more inspiring than Kodi's whit and Acey's like-ability is the men they have become. I loved watching my brothers become husbands and fathers. They both treat their wives in ways that I would love to be treated. And they are both the cutest dads.

I tell people all the time that I am obsessed with my brothers, and it's true.
