Myths abound. They are so sweet. They are so innocent. They woud never use wit, irony or sarcasm in a conversation.
Busted - another Myth that is.
Emma Sage has the most unique and loving relationships with her siblings. In her relationship with Katrina it is a 'Love - Hate' full of wit and sarcasm and absolutely hysterical.
Last night Katrina slept home [she is not home more than she is home these days, but not officially moved out]. As we were all getting ready for work/school I say to Katrina.
"I don't know how you do it, but you were only home for a few hours and your room looks like a tornado hit it"
to which she replys "I'll clean it"
and Emma Sage walks by not missing a beat and says "Or you could move out"
She is quick on the uptake and always ready to taunt and tease her sister.
They love each other, they really do!
