What is your favorite memory with your sibling?
1st question of the ‘Be Positive‘ Collection
Sophia Sarkar: My favorite memory with Carter was “The Nutella Day”. This was the day that Carter got a Nutella jar and ate HUGE spoonfuls of it. He was covered with Nutella all over his face. This is my favorite memory because he was so cute and it still makes me giggle.
Garrett McKenzie: My favorite memory was getting to go to Disney World with my sister Reagan for the first time and getting to watch her see all of her favorite characters.
Matthew Moon: My favorite memory is when Jacob used to hold me when I was a baby.
