I am sure many of you agree that one of the best things about having children is to see them turn into little individuals, with their own unique personalities. What I didn't expect however is how close a bond my two have, especially as they are a boy and a girl and 3.5 years apart.
Personally I grew up with a brother who is so very different to me (I am sure it didn't help that our parents were also divorced and we didn't always live together), and we never really played together, apart from the hours of computer games we used to play in the mid 80s, ha!
I think as a result, I totally adore seeing Wilhelm & Cornelia being so close and how they are so affectionate with each other. Cornelia, who is the more outspoken of the two, often says: Wilhelm, you are my best friend. Wilhelm nods and smiles. And that, and those few words, make me so happy.
