Since Owen was born, I’ve been waiting for the day that my boys could play together. However, with his developmental delays, I was beginning to fear that they may never be at a place to truly interact. I should have known not to doubt. It’s still in short 5-10 minute bursts, but more and more, Kellen and Owen are playing together.
Kellen is such a loving big brother. He already has his life planned. He’s going to move to Arizona and be a fire fighter. Kyle and I can visit sometime, but not too much. Owen will live with him.”I’ll make sure he’s always okay, Mom”.
Owen was six months and just out of the NICU before Kellen got to hold his brother. I love the look pride in his face. Owen wasn’t smiling yet, but he found one for his big brother.
It’s hard to think of any part of parenting that’s better than watching your kids laugh together.
Yes, Kellen, you can be goofy and the best big brother all at once.© Copyright Tatum, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ain't No Roller Coaster
