Big brothers are the best! They can do so many amazing things! Just ask Simon.
Yesterday Josh stayed home from school. He had thrown up the day before, but yesterday he was hopping and skipping (he can never just walk anywhere) all over the house. He decided first thing in the morning that he would spend his free day with Simon.
They sat down to make a list of all the fun things they wanted to do.
Jump on the tramp
Play a game
Climb a tree
Play puppies in space
It was an action packed day. Full of all the fun things that Simon could dream up.
One of the other kids mumbled under their breath, “If I had a free day home, that is NOT how I would spend it!”
Instantly, my mind jumped forward 20 years to when Simon will be reminiscing about his childhood. He will remember his big brother Josh with a little bit of magic. How Josh could build the best forts, and blow the biggest bubbles. How Josh always made him feel so special.
Maybe Josh should have been in school. But if you ask me, I would say that the way he spent his day was eternally more valuable!
