Big Brother

Life is hard when you have a big brother! When Stephen was a baby, he was always treated so gently. His needs were attended to IMMEDIATELY, no one tackled him, no one screamed in his face, and no one bit his toes. Well, life is not so easy for Adrian! At any moment a 3 year old may come hurtling toward him to alternately frighten and entertain him. However, Adrian loves Stephen and thinks he’s hilarious. Their relationship is like many of ours–the person we love the most also makes us cry the most! Depending on his mood, Stephen takes great joy in either making Adrian laugh or scaring him and making him cry. Stephen can get hysterical laughter out of Adrian like no one else. Half the things he does to Adrian we are about to stop but then realize that Adrian is actually enjoying the torment. Last night, Stephen put a green bucket over Adrian’s head. Just as I was about to rescue the baby, Stephen took the bucket off. Adrian emerged from the bucket laughing. I guess you have to be tough when you’re a little brother!

    Aw, poor little baby! Haha, I guess it’s a good thing he enjoys most of it though. 😛

    Poor little guy. I feel his pain. I once had this big sister who used to push me around in a box and do all kinds of things 🙂
