Why Do I Have to Keep Saying It?

Overheard in the back of my car today on the way to school:

"Big Brother, I love you."

"I know, Little Man."

"Aren't you gonna say it back?"

"(Heavy sigh) Little Man...I have to love you. I'm your brother."

Okay...not exactly the loving sentiment I would have liked him to return, but at least he feels some kind of obligation toward his younger brother. I guess that's better than them fighting. I hope he grows out of his apathy toward his sibling soon and returns to being his loving self.

He will. It might take some time to get there, but he will. And someday he will regret those times of not saying it back and being a better older sibling, but we all have to learn it I suppose.

At least he knows he is supposed to love his brother?? And yes, better than fighting.
