In 2009 I posted a beautiful poem called “Big Brother” along with this picture.
The poem talked about how much a little brother looks up to his big brother.
My little eyes are watching
All you say and do
And when I grow up big and tall
I want to be like you
My little ears are listening
To everything you say
I am learning how to grow up
To be like you someday.
So, be careful how you teach me
To be the person that you are.
You're a night in shining armor
You are my shining star.
Why am I reposting this?
I think it will always be this way. No matter what the age. Big brothers carry a huge amount of responsibility simply because of the birth order God has placed them in. Fair or not, it’s just the way it is.
I’m super thankful that my little guy has such awesome big brothers to look up to! Even if those big brothers no longer like having their pictures taken. :)
