If I give you nothing else, parents of the world, I give you major props. I think most people forget all the effort it takes to raise and teach a child. Especially when they see an exasperated parent and wonder why they don’t just buck up and keep it moving. Kids are tough. I’m only an uncle and an older brother and I feel those responsibilties are heavy enough. Parents have to put in a whole lot of work to mentally bring up a child and provide for them
Like I said, I give you major props. Continue Reading
So it’s late, and my little brothers have once again coerced me into spending another night, this time I came prepared and brought a bag of clothes just in case lol. I’ll use this time to take them out tomorrow I guess. Handball and pizza isn’t so bad.
And plus Mikey got to fulfill his big wish to talk to my best friend. …now he wants to meet him.
I did talk to their mom and dad about some things that were bothering me. Like I love my brothers and i try to be there for them as much as I can, but I felt like I was kindof intruding on their space a little. It was funny because they had the concern that they were inflicting upon my social life. We basically had concerns about eachother and it was good that we took the time to air this out lol.
I also inquired as to why they never requested a progress report of the tutoring sessions, but they were judging my work by how they were improving in school and that it was great. So yaay for that.
I really love my bros, but I think sometimes they forget that I’m way older than they are. Well I know Mikey doesn’t because he brought up the big “sex” question to me today. Like no lie, that scared the shit out of me because right then I knew he would be trusting me for this kindof advice primarily. I’m a little nervous that I might make a mistake on this one. Especially when he tried to delve into my sexual history. I just stopped him by saying it’s none of his business yet.
I always thought it would be cool to have younger siblings. To play with. To grow up with. To have fun with. But this comes with such a great responsibility also. You are their role model, aside from their parents. Plus they take your words more seriously because of the fact that they can relate to you more. It’s a scary thing to have so much on you.
And sorry Jonathan for the surprise call thing. He really wanted to say hi. Like really badly.
Til next time. Stay frosty.
