The Chronicles of Biscuit - Brotherly Love

Tonight we arrived home from ballgames about 9:30 p.m. Since the older two children have basketball camps in the morning, they were in bed by 10:00. The youngest (6 yrs.), Biscuit, asked if he and his brother (9 yrs.), Jacob, could stay up late. Usually that's a Friday night treat, but this Saturday the boys have baseball games, so they will have to be in bed earlier. I told him he would have to ask his dad when he got back from checking on our baby goats.

When Biscuit's dad got home, he said, "Dad, Jacob and I voted, and we picked midnight for our bedtime." Biscuit's dad replied, "Oh, you did?". Biscuit said, "Yep!". He walked out and my husband and I talked about how tonight would be okay for them to stay up late, but I thought they might want to pull out the sofa bed, just in case they fell asleep. So I yelled (yes, we yell around here :)...but this was in a kind, lazy way!) "Jacob!" Biscuit heard me and said, "Mom, don't get Jacob in trouble!" He was afraid that Jacob was in trouble and it would ruin their plan.

Their vote passed both parents. Instructions were given to be in bed by 12:00 midnight - they didn't want to sleep all night on the sofa bed. They put in a movie and asked if they could make popcorn. I was already going to post about brotherly love, but when I went into the living room and saw something really sweet, I knew I needed a picture. They might not ever believe me in 20 years if I didn't take a picture to prove it! Of course, these two have their fusses and squabbles, but for tonight and hopefully for many years to come, they can be the best of friends.

Update: At 11:45, both boys decided they were too sleepy to stay up until midnight. They went straight to bed. It's thundering and lightening so they wanted to sleep together. In Biscuit's twin bed!

Sweet dreams, my sweet boys!

That is definitely something to be grateful for! I love it when my children get along and do things together. I try to tell them, too.

Love your background music! :D

Have a great Tuesday!

awww that is sweet!!! I know in the case of my brother and I...we fought like cats and dogs on and off growing up. But now we are the best of friends (even though we still disagree)...guess it comes with time ;)
