Why is she not on her own or in a group setting?

Does she work?

How old are you? I can just imagine the sibling squabbles lol. My daughters are 2 years apart, and fight like cats when they aren't super loving lol. They are best friends as long as they are in good moods.

I didn't have sisters, it's an interesting dynamic to watch for sure!

She is in a group setting, it’s called a family!

She wouldn’t do well living on her own. She can be alone for short periods of time but she needs someone to look after her.

Yes she works.

How do you feel about the comedian Tom Segura substituting the phrase “your idea has an extra 21st chromosome” instead of using “retarded” and then encouraging his followers to harass anyone who opposed this idea?

I’m 38 now. I was 29 when she first moved in with us. Due to the age gap, we had a different dynamic than most sisters that are close in age.

No.

No school. She works as part of a clean up crew for my husband’s construction business.
