Sibling Day

Every year since 1995, when my older sister, Sue invited her siblings to the St. Louis Baseball Cardinal's game, we've been doing "Sibling Day." We all had so much fun at the game, we decided we'd get together once a year,  just the four of us and spend the entire day together... and Sibling Day was born. I'm not sure where we're headed this year (as I write this ahead of time), but today's the day--our 20th Sibling Day!

One year we decided to wear matching t-shirts that said 'Sibling Day' and some indication of our birth order, and since that year, matching t-shirts have been worn. Last year, all black with white letters (THING 1, THING 2, THING 3, THING 4) drew the most attention from passerbys. (I drew the shirts below in different colors.)
If you'd like to hear about one specific Sibling Day, then be sure to come to the book launch and signing where you can check out the book, Not Your Mother's Book on Family (co-edited by my writing critique pal, Linda O'Connell). Details to come soon about the date and place!

As far as Sibling Day goes, we never know what's in store for us, but a good hearty laugh always seems to be part of the equation.


  1. Lynn--Have a great day. May it be fun and full of laughter and stories...

  2. What a wonderful tradition!!! I got the art book two days ago, Lynn. I have been going to write you...going to look far neither have happened but I can always hope!!!!

  3. I think that's a fantastic idea. I'm so impressed you've carried on this tradition for such a long time. Hope you and your siblings have a wonderful day together!
