Moments to Remember: Brother Teacher

Often, with the age difference between my kids, and their particular ages at this time (5 and 2), there are fights, squabbles, and all out temper tantrums brought on my brotherly misunderstandings.

However, those moments where they are playing together are precious.  This week in particular, Elliott took it upon himself to "teach" and "lead" his little brother several different times.  I talked about how Elliott made up a game for their Shapes and Colors sensory tub to help his little brother practice his matching skills.


Then...I managed to capture this picture of Elliott teaching Emory how to play a game on the iPad, and it made me glad that I can keep them home with me and watch their friendship and sibling bond grow.
