My Sisters

Brittany Wilson 1988 (Milwaukee, WI)

I have 6 sisters that range in age from 8 ½ y.o.-40 y.o. Here they are.

Athena-She’s the “maternal instinct” sister. Her instinct is a sign of her mothering spirit & the vibes that she throws out her atmosphere & toward someone who needs it. That’s who she was, who she is & who she’ll always be.
Pooh-She’s a protector & has always been a workaholic since we were kids (she was a teenager).
Shaunda-She’s a daycare teacher & it’s cool that she has the patience with kids...I’d rather her have the patience for the both of us.
Chelsea-She’s 3 ½ years younger than me & her life totally revolves around Jayden. What wouldn’t she do for him?
BriAnna-She’s my homie & 5 years younger than me. If she needs a solid done, I’m right on the front line just like she’d be for me vice versa (Athena is the exact same way).
Alisa-She’s my sassypants & I wouldn’t have it any other way.

At the end of the day, my sisters are my sisters & I love them all!!!
