Brothers

Sam's spelling homework tonight was to define his spelling words.  My favorite was his definition of brother - "a little sibling who sometimes likes to wrestle."

***********

Right now Jack and Ben are in their room "sleeping."  Jack is trying to teach Ben to count.

Jack says, "Okay, Ben.  Like this.  One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten."

Ben says, "One, two, three, four, seven, eight, four."

Jack says, "No, Ben.  Say the numbers after me.... one..."

Ben: "one."

Jack: "two..."

Ben:  "two."

Jack:  "three..."

Ben: "three."

Jack:  "four..."

Ben:  "four."

Jack:  "five..."

Ben:  "seven."

Jack:  "No Ben, five comes after four."

Ben:  "no.  seven."

And on an on.  Jack has the patience of a saint.  It is adorable.
