With this new lifestyle of motherhood and SAHM, I get to witness and experience my children grow up. As I struggle to find out what to talk about and praying to God to help me figure out a topic to write earlier in the day. My mind kept bouncing from my learning pains of my hair to Kevin’s new interest, I couldn’t quite find the words to say. However, as I look over from my couch to seeing Bassie crawling to his big brother Kevin as he finishes his potatoes from dinner. I remember what I have witnessed this week between the 2 brothers.
Bassie is now 9 month’s old and has perfected his crawl, he can now reach up and sit on his knees, smiling and laughing as he tries to get his brother’s attention. He reaches for his brother’s plate, bowls, and cups (had a few spills lately) all in an attempt to share in the fun. Now that Bassie is quickly catching up to his brother and is more interactive, the relationship between his brother changed. Kevin is more careful and loving of his brother.
I love to see the interaction and the relationship growing. Just 2 days ago, I witnessed Kevin giving Bassie a hug and staying I love you Bassie and gave him a kiss on the head. His brother smiling and laughing and sharing in the embrace. This touched my heart and I felt that my words to Kevin a few days ago has resignated with him. During a visit to my mother-in-law’s, she told me that I need to teach and remind my sons that “they need to stick together, love each other, and take care of each other because when Mommy and Daddy aren’t around, they only got each other”. I firmly told Kevin the same thing and I saw that Kevin’s relationship had changed. We still have work to do on the sharing part but i’ll come along.
I get more excited when I see the relationship forming between my sons. Every morning, Bassie crawls to Kevin’s bedside and tries to wake him up with his pats and calls. Kevin will share in a laugh with Bassie. When I look at Bassie’s eyes as he looks at his brother, I see so much love and admiration. I love this time and it’s only going to get better from here.
