Siblings are the first friends we ever really have. Growing up side by side creates a special relationship that you just can’t have with anyone else. Siblings can be a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, a person to play tricks on… whatever your sibling is to you, they’ll always hold a special place in our hearts.
We’re celebrating this National Siblings Day as it’s a family affair here at Scamp, with sisters Stacey and Jennifer running the business. With 5 kids of their own between them, the family know all too well what its like to have a sibling! Stacey and Jennifer also have another sister, Catherine, who is pictured here!
To celebrate the day, we’ve put together the 5 best reasons why having a sibling is really great. If you’ve got any memories with your siblings that you’d like to share, we’d love to know! Share them with us on our Facebook page or our twitter.
- You can borrow (or steal) their clothes whenever you want.
Okay, maybe not whenever you want, but most of the time if you ask reaaaaaaally nicely and do their chores for them, they might let you wear that top you love.
- You have instant advice from the person who knows you the best.
Whether it be relationship advice or how to fix that god-awful hair-do advice, siblings won’t hold back on telling you what you need to hear.
- You get a partner in crime.
They might not really want to, but your sibling is always there to help take the blame when you’ve done something ‘hilarious’ to your mum’s new high heels.
- You’re forced to develop a sense of humour.
Especially if you’re the youngest, you probably had to endure your older sibling playing a lot of tricks on you. But you should be thanking them; they made your sense of humour amazing!
- You will always have a best friend for life.
Whether they’re your brother or sister, siblings are your best friends forever. Through thick and thin, they’ll always have your back, even if you don’t know it.
