There are lots of great reasons to have a big brother. Someone to stick up for you. Someone to teach you how to say cuss words and sneak snacks from the pantry when mama isn’t looking. You can also build big towers together and mourn together when they topple.
One bad thing about big brothers?
Big. Fat. Shiners.
Arlo got the bad end of the deal this morning as the boys were playing chase in the living room. He apparently caught the corner of a table to the face. Sully ran away as fast as he could while Beebab sobbed. Luckily, he recovered quickly, but he still looks like he was punched on the school playground. I suppose your first shiner is just a right of passage for all boys.
