On Siblings Day, we bring you a relationship that shares an unbreakable bond – Sisters. They fight, laugh, argue, live through precious moments in childhood and grow up with a bond that no one can truly comprehend except themselves. When you’re sitting in a room full of people and you smile at each other because you just shared a quiet joke, a memory or a glance that says it all, you know it’s your sister you’re talking to. Big Sisters and little sisters share a relationship that transcends words. However, here we are, talking to a pair of sisters as they recount what they love, and (don’t) love, about each other! Read on and see if you find yourself in one of them!
Introducing: Big Sister Umamah and Little Sister Madeeha. We asked them a few questions, listen to what they have to say!
What you can’t stand about her?
Madeeha: She thinks she’s always right!
Umamah: She’s messy (used to be lol). And her BAD spellings! hahaha (She laughs).
One thing you love about her?
Madeeha: She’s the best person to turn to for advice. She’s always there for you and will give her honest opinion.
Umamah: She’s always helpful
The first thing you say when you’re in deep trouble and you call her?
Madeeha: Umamah, help!
Umamah: Hey, are you free? Emergency.
The one thing only she will understand about you?
Madeeha: The way my mind works. No one else gets it.
Umamah: My intentions are always good.
What your children think of her?
Madeeha: Don’t have any yet for them to think of her :p
Umamah: Smitten. Ready to leave me to live with her! hahaha (That laugh again!).
What do your parents think of her?
Madeeha: Second in command, the one who can control any situation, the responsible and stubborn.
Umamah: She will always be there to help.
One thing you will never do even though you love her?
Madeeha: Tell her something not true just to make her feel better. We’re honest with each other and it’s always out of love.
Umamah: Let it go even when she is wrong – I will call her out.
One thing you will always do for her?
Umamah: Fight for her.
The time you had the biggest fight with her?
Madeeha: My teenage years, when I did some stupid stuff and she called me out for it (rightfully so).
Umamah: She lied about her grades so I slapped her :p
The time you made up after the biggest fight?
Madeeha: Organically I think. We can’t really last without talking to each other for a long time.
Umamah: My mom saying … talk to each other! hahaha (She laughs – again).
Longest you haven’t spoken to each other?
Madeeha: 4-5 days, I think it was right after my wedding and things were a bit crazy.
Umamah: 3 days maybe?
Message for all the big sisters, little sisters out there?
Madeeha: Your big sister is your best friend, your second mother and the person who knows you better than you might know yourself. Cherish this relationship! It’s the best thing!
Umamah: Big sisters – no one will be there for helping you like your younger sisters.
Little sisters, listen up – big sisters are the best! Lol – Spoken like a big sister, if we may say so!
