Big Brother

Wolf seems to really enjoy his new status as the big brother. He loves to kiss Bear, take baths with him, and he holds him without getting bored (if you know the whirlwind of a boy that is Wolf, that is really saying something!)

He often tries to help calm Bear when he's upset. First he tells me "Mom, I think Bear wants milk" (ie--to nurse). Then he sings "Rock-a-bye Bear-ee" in a very high-pitched and strained voice. (The crying baby makes him uptight, and he hasn't learned how to keep a calm voice through it.) Then he talks to him in a sing-songy way: "it's ok Bear, I'm right here. I'm big brother! It's ok..."
(None of these efforts ever seem to help, but it's cute to see him try!)

Now, amid the frequent repetition of the phrase "I'm Big Brother!" daddy has taught Wolf to say something new to Bear...daddy just read a classic Orwell novel you see...so now Wolf says "it's ok Bear, Big Brother is watching you!!!"

Oh my poor dear kids, there is no hope for normalcy, is there.
Hmmmm.
Thank Heaven!
