Today we spent most of the day pent up in the house tending to your sick baby brother*. It only seemed fair that you and your brother got to go out for some alone time with me to the destination of your choice. Drum roll for that destination is……Burger King, Burger King with the giant play place that is.
Your older brother Jack is your best friend. You are as different as can be in personalities, but you guys just get each other. Not saying you don’t have your fights, but for the most part you guys are constantly cracking each other up. You brothers do everything together and it has just always been that way. You have been under Jack’s wing for so long, that I have worried about how you will do without him. You have voiced some concern too, telling your brother about how not making friends was a worry. Jack, being the protective big brother that he is, came up with a plan for you. At recess you guys will not be on the play yard together as the Kindergartners have a private yard, but Jack says there is a loophole. He told you that at some point during his recess he will come over to the wall with his friends and they will help you meet some new kids. Of course this all has to be done through a fence so we shall see….
Tonight at Burger King something happened though that gave me confidence that friend making shouldn’t even be a worry for you. Jack is approaching 9 and I guess he was feeling a little old for the play place and instead decided to hang out with me and discuss the many evolutions of Pokemons. I thought you were going to be upset, but you weren’t. Instead you made friend with two little boys and had a great time. You even brought them over and introduce them both to Jack and I by name.
You and Jack’s bond is and will forever be deep, I don’t doubt that for a second. I am pretty certain that you will always enjoy his protection, but I think it ok to say your going to do just fine on your own.
