I saw this on Facebook and it made me LOL:
I’ve no plans on being a bouncer, so might as well be great in referee-ing, haha! At this point where my kids are ages 5 and 1.8, referee-ing is just in the following situations: when the big brother is active and might hurt the little sister; when the little sister messes up big brother’s toys; and when both of them want to be on Mommy! But overall, Z and Y are very loving and affectionate of each other. And that’s my #cheers moment as of late.
Z takes on his big brother role seriously and will not let anyone “borrow” his sister. I also appreciate it when he’s the one doing the explaining to Y. For example, last Friday we were supposed to play in Kidzoona but it was closed for an event. Y was obviously in distraught when we were walking away and then I heard Z tell her “It’s okay Ysabelly, we’ll play there next time.” And when we went for their check-up and vaccine, Z was the one consoling Y when she cried after she got her shot. He says that Y is his best friend. Haaay, this little boy may be a handful at times but his heart is so big!
Y is at the stage wherein whatever her Kuya holds, she’ll want to have it too. We had to buy them matching shoes because Y will get Z’s rubber shoes! And more often than not, she follows Z so I’ve to tell Z to tell her to clean up or sit down. She adores her Kuya and smothers him with kisses!
Thank you Cheers for making me appreciate such a simple gesture from my kids, which is actually a big thing because they have no choice but to love each other! And for being our partner in cleaning up the mess this siblings make!
