Big brother


Zachary has taken to asserting his “bigness” on Benjamin.

I will catch him every once in awhile wacking him with something, knocking him over, pushing his head into the floor, etc.

So, I say…

“ZACHARY! Don’t hurt Benjamin! When you [fill in the blank] it hurts him! You need to be a nice big brother and be careful.”

Today, he replied.

“I tant.”

“You can’t?”

“I tant.”

“You can’t? You can’t what?”

“I tant beeg brudder.”

“You can’t be a nice big brother?”

“No, I tant, mama.”
” I baby doo!”

“You’re a baby too?”


“That’s right, your mama’s baby too.”
“But you still can’t hurt Benjamin!!”
