"Little Brothers"

(by Candace from Phineas and Ferb)



"Little Brother
I remember when you first came home
Then came another
Little brother of our own
Even when you break my toys
You will always be my

Little brothers
'Cuz you're younger
We're related
And you're boys

Even when you're making too much noise
You will always be my

Little brothers
'Cuz you're younger
We're related
And you're boys

Little brothers..."

Two of my little brothers have birthdays today. Ivar is 29 (oh my goodness!) & Aaron is 21 (what?!) ~> how'd they grow up so fast?!

I remember when Ivar first came into my family. He was four (& I was nine) when my dad & his mom got married. He was a cute little guy that Kerry & I would play hide-and-seek with. We loved to watch him dance around to Michael Jackson songs! He is now my not-so-little-brother, and he would totally beat me up if he read that! But, he lives a few hours away {and I'm sure he doesn't read my blog}, so I think I'm safe!

Aaron was the baby brother I always wanted! {OK, if I'm completely honest, I wanted a sister! But he was a BABY, and that was the main thing! Plus, the second I saw him, I was in love!} He was born when I was in 8th grade, and he was my baby! I didn't live with him full-time, but when I was there, he was MINE! I took care of him constantly ~ because I wanted to, not because I had to. He's a good uncle to my kids ~ playing games with them & such ~ and I'm so glad for that! He's not in such a great place right now, and my heart breaks for him. He will always be my baby brother, even though he's about twice my size! :)
