One of Littlest’s favorite morning activities lately is to share a seat with his big brother while Oldest practices his math on Reflex. It makes my day to hear all of his expressive noises. Littlest “oohs” and “aahs” at all the right moments. There are also a lot of giggles and exclamations of “Whoa!”
But the clapping is my ultimate favorite, when Littlest applauds his big brother for winning the game. It sets my Mommy-heart all a-flutter.
Just a clarifier here: there is plenty of sibling rivalry at my house as well. But perhaps that’s what makes the moments of comaraderie so special.
