Big Brother & Little Brother


Last night, I walked in on Ben and Evan coloring all over themselves with markers. {Again}

Benjamin, I scolded, you are the big brother. You are the one who needs to help teach Evan what’s right and what’s wrong. This is wrong. Don’t you understand that?

I know, mommy, he answered. That’s what I was doing: Teaching Evan what’s wrong.

    Boys…I have two (7 and 10). Little girls are so foreign to me. I don’t know any of the little girl toys. I know WWE, skateboarding, and telling my 10 year old he MUST wear deoderant. And forget about aim – my toilets and the floor behind the toilets look like a Jackson Pollack painting.

    Hmmph. Welcome to my life. With boys. And insanity. And many, many “teaching moments” I would probably rather forget (but which I know will provide many chuckles much LATER in my life).

    I literally laughed out loud in my office this morning! It’s cute and something I would totally expect your son to say!

    Those are the moments I just can’t help being happy about and launching a full on photo shoot. We send them to all the relatives, the punks get buckets of attention and never do it again. Seriously… it becomes old hat.

    Ha! Brotherly love, you can’t beat it. Hopefully they will feel as close when they are older :)
