    Aw. :) I love kids (I have a career that is completely focused on kids), but have been stressing about how I will ever be able to have kids with my career and loans and all that. I talked to hubs about it and actually thought, “It will be okay if we don’t have kids. I won’t feel sad about it.” But when I saw your pics I said, “Nevermind. Must.have.kids.”

      Aww, thank you. They kind of rock my world in a way that I never ever expected. I wasn’t sure that I wanted kids but now, watching these two together and how they love each other makes my heart swell. They are kind of ridiculous together.

      Thank YOU. It’s true. I love that they are brothers and love each other so. I have to remember that when they start beating the crap out of each other.

    That is so sweet. Children are pretty amazing. I am in awe of mine everyday! Print and keep this for their wedding day (or when they leave the house). It’s something very special.

      Yes, I too am in awe of them every day and of their bond. I’m glad that I did this and that they will have this to look back on.

      Thank you Jonathan. Watching my kids together makes me realize how lucky I am to have two siblings of my own. There’s nothing quite like a sibling bond.

      I kind of wish that I could bottle up that exuberance!! I laugh every time I look at these pictures. He totally pulled him up the entire way. It was very sweet.

    I shared a post about brothers, too. We must be on the same wavelength :)

    I LOVE THIS!!!
    Seriously?
    I am picturing this tangible, in a frame, hanging on a wall. This is something that they will treasure forever and ever and one day, when they are fathers perhaps, they will read it again through tired eyes and say “My mother wrote this.”

      Oh thank you Kim. I so appreciate your comment. I kind of wrote this on a lark and pretty quickly but now, I’m so glad that I did. I think that I will create something from this for them to have in their room and hopefully hang on to as they get older.

    Oh. I love the hockey pictures best. And really, I suspect your ‘on the squat side’ model is going to shoot up here very soon.

      Thank you so much. I kind of love that he’s a little on the squat side but yes, I have a feeling he’s going to sprout up soon!

    I know where you’re coming from, having my two boys. I always tell them that they are brothers forever. My own two brothers aren’t very close, but I hope for my boys, they will remain close forever! Great writing!

      Thank you Jill. I keep reminding them that they are stuck with each other which I think delights them and scares them at the same time :-) I know what you mean. I wasn’t terribly close to my sibling growing up because they were 5 and 7 years older but we’re close now and I’m so thankful for my siblings.

    I LOVE TIHS POEM!!! I just realized that we already follow each other (lol) but I love this poem! I’m telling you this sounds just like my boys! That’s truly amazing – esp the body slamming thing? omg!! AND the hugging thing? Yes! This is terrific. Your blog inspires me.

      Thank you Andrea! I will never tire of the body slamming and hugging. My youngest gets this glint in his eye before he runs full speed and slams into me. Love it.

    I’ve had this post in my inbox since you wrote it so I could swing by and tell you that I loved it. Sorry it took so long! I do love it, though, and I’m glad Stasha inspired both of us to write these. Someday our guys will laugh reading them. I have one who needs 10+ hugs a day, too, and he’s turned me into a convert!

      Thank you Jessica. Both of your posts were so beautiful and I was a little intimidated to take on this format. My little guys have definitely turned me in to a hugger. I love getting hugs from them. Hope you are well.
