Scenes From a Marriage: You Had Me At...

Happy birthday, Cora!

Luke and Cora (much like their older siblings) had a love/hate "you're more like my sibling than my cousin" relationship for a while. They're both stubborn and see the world differently.

Lately, they've bonded as they've found that they share a common love of antagonizing their older siblings...that coupled with their desire to get into mischief.

So, I was excited to have Luke draw Cora a picture for her birthday. Luke did it, and I asked him to explain it to me. Luke said, "This is Cora with a parachute, but it's broken and she's falling down. And, this is me with a gun, and I'm shooting her."

Perhaps the rivalry still exists?
