This is what big brothers are for

More and more I find my little lentil and his littler lolly playing together. It makes me so joyous. I suppose twice as happy as I am when adoring them separately. It also reminds me of my (little) brother and playing with him and how usually he got injured. At least that's how I remember it.
It also makes me think about the power of two. I dream of having more kids but sometimes I can see the value in there just being two. My brother and I are pretty great combo, as my mom pointed out. But I remember him playing a lot with our cousins and my little ones don't have cousins around, so I feel like two might not be enough. (When he was hanging out with the kids, I was hanging out with the moms - wise before my time, I suppose.) On the other hand you don't have to share your sibling when there are only two. Only time will tell.


  1. They are just so beautiful together. My heart literally feels warmer just looking at them. Thank you!

  2. it would feel so much warmer if you were looking at them in Texas!
