I’m Gonna Miss My Lil Bro

Giggles, squeals
And smol smiles galore,
Adam and I
Rough house-ing on the floor

He pushes me over
And I roll on my back
He jumps into my arms
And I hug him right back

With his face right near mine
His volume down to a 2,
He rubs our noses together, and says
Ugga mugga“;
I love you too.

I barely have time
To appreciate his love
Before he gets right back up
And gives me a shove!

I throw up my hands
And chase him around.
It’s a lovely way to spend
One of my last nights in town.

I’m leaving for the FPEA homeschool convention on tomorrow, and then I’m going straight to Camp Gilead for the summer, only coming back on Saturdays (basically). 

So, I’m trying to soak up all the Adam-ness I can before I leave.  Monday night, I played with him after dinner for a bit.  He gets a bit riled up, but his sweet, quick love inbetween all of his little boyish yelling and tumbling almost made me cry because I know how much I’ll miss him.  D: 

He just turned four on Saturday, and I can’t believe I’m gonna be gone all summer and miss his amazing adorableness!  I’m storing up all his affection in my heart so that I won’t feel like I should have spent more time with him, should have let him play racetrack on my bed one more time, etc. 

Shoutout to my lil bro! ❤



P.S. I guess I did manage to fit in one more blog post before I left! 🙂

I Love My Brother!

A few minutes ago…

Adam comes into my room and tries to give me my bird field guide and notebook, but the weight of the field guide is confusing to him and he grunts in frustration.  He finally figures out how to pick it up and he hands it to me, face aglow with pride in his accomplishment.  With his mission accomplished he settles down for some chill time by plopping down on the ground and looking at me.  This is the signal for me to get down my magnetic chess board with the pieces all set up for him to play with.  He loves it, and usually brings me the pieces… Or scatters them about the house. 🙂

Nothing brings me more joy than to watch him taking interest in chess and birding at such an early age, and wanting me to share it with him. Thank God for brothers!


P.S. Yes, I wrote it in present tense even though I was talking about a past event. You can’t stop me. Mwahahahaha… (Mom, please don’t punish me. 🙂 )
