Aiden is such a good big brother! One day, about a month ago, Aiden came running into the bathroom as I was taking a shower to announce in a very worried voice, “Mom! Dallin’s awake! Dallin’s crying!”
“I’ll be out in a minute,” I replied. I ended up taking , my time, however (I cherish long, hot showers.).
I came out of the bedroom, but could hear no crying. I entered the boys’ bedroom where, to my great surprise, Dallin was fast asleep. Aiden was sitting on the couch, watching TV in the front room.
“Aiden,” I asked,”what happened to Dallin?”
“He woke up, Mom. Then Dallin fall asleep.” Aiden had gone in the room, climbed in the crib, and comforted Dallin back to sleep.
Today. I was in the shower (yes, again. I do that). Both boys were in the front room watching “Magic Schoolbus”. Again, Aiden runs into the bathroom. “Mom! Dallin just spit up!”
“Okay, clean it up. I’ll be out in a minute.”
Sure enough, when I came out a few minutes later, there was no evidence of spit up anywhere (except for the used blanket next to Dallin), and Aiden was singing and dancing to make his little brother laugh.
Who needs a sitter when I have my three year old???
