Re: sibling rivalry
No, not all older siblings feel this way because we are all individuals. Your kids are unique in their own ways to so it is not fair to assume that your girls will feel about each other the way you two feel about each other. Let them grow their own relationship outside of what your relationship with your sister is. I have two girls similar ages as yours as they pretty much get along. There are times where there is some toy stealing and whatnot but that's what kids do. I am going to do what I can to help foster a loving relationship between the two. As for your sister's comment, it seems really overboard unless she just has a sick sense of humor all the time. You can't change how she feels about you. Be the bigger person and continue working towards a healthy relationship with her or create a healthy distance if you two really do clash on a lot of things.
