You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth
– Kahlil Gibran
When it comes to key moments of childhood, is there anything bigger than meeting your younger brother for the first time?
I have to admit I was more than a bit nervous about how Max would handle a little brother, but he has been an absolute star the last couple of days and he is already so good with him – his favourite phrase is “sooo cute!”, and he is being such a great help in fetching nappies, trying to calm Ben down when he’s upset, and is (almost) managing not to shout all the time! I heard him walking down the landing this morning to our room, whispering to himself, “go see baby Ben”, and then he spent ages just staring at him in his cot. I hope baby Ben knows how lucky he is to have such an amazing big brother in his life.
