Brotherly Love

by Tickled Red on June 4, 2010 · 22 comments

My boys are 4 years apart and you would hardly know it. They are thick as thieves. And even though they march to the beat of their own drum they harmonize wonderfully together.

When it comes to exploring life’s wonders, sharing secrets and walking the land of fantasies these two guys are shoulder to shoulder always.

They truly do have each others backs, put each others best interest first and are always looking out for one another.

Living life out loud and fully devoured…absolutely! One is definitely more of a show boat but our little man is starting to hold his own in the theatrics department.

It is so touching and heart warming knowing that we can rest easy at night assured of the bond that our boys have developed. That they will walk tall together as men shoulder to shoulder through life’s harsh challenges and obstacles. Our guys, our babies, our sweet angels who are growing up so quickly. They will always be the best of friends and never let the other come to harm. How that thought TICKLES us so.

Ummm…oops! Please disregard that last part. It seems we may have jumped the gun. It looks like someone needs to work on the whole have each others back concept just a wee bit more.

M1 you don’t try and ambush your poor unsuspecting little brother while he is contemplating what it would be like to live the life of a minnow. You don’t see minnow brethren trying to take each others heads off do you? Nope, they are always moving gracefully and quickly in unison through the waters. Fleeing from crabs… bigger fish… nets…and the inevitable life at the end of a hook.

On second thought keep playing as you are monkeys. I have a feeling that little man is going to be bigger than you one day soon M1 and the tables will be turned. Until then you had better sleep with one eye open or are you forgetting that he shares a room with you?

PS: M1 didn’t strike M2 I promise. Our oldest loves to ham it up when anyone is around to watch. He should be on the stage…maybe one day.

–>Very cute! My siblings and I weren’t close til I got out of college and then we had a common bond – – Making fun of our parents! :-)

I know what you mean :) Mine are so much younger that we are just now as they get older finding that same common ground when it comes to conversations.

So cute. Wish I could wiggle my nose and be sitting on that dock…looks like heaven! (even with the ambush) :0)

Wish I could be sitting there everyday as well :) That is at Jamie’s house (sis).

Awwww, very sweet! Nothing makes a mom more happy than to have her babies love one another, their whole lives through! :)

Yes m’am :) I will admit that I don’t have much to complain about…ever.

It’s amazing one didn’t end up in the water! :) That’s what my sister and I would have done. Hee.

I was thinking the same thing as we were goofing around. I am just thankful that it wasn’t me along with the camera.

Beautiful! I have loved watching the bond grow between my 20yr. daughter and my 14 yr.old step-son. They were both “only” children until 8 yrs. ago, and have developed a wonderful, life-long relationship :)

Your boys are terrific! It’s so great how well they get along!

Our boys are 20 months apart. When they were much younger they did have their fights … but mostly they’d been great friends. Now that they are both in their 30’s, their friendship has really matured. They each relish each other’s children and spouses … they both play with all the kids like they were kids themselves.

I know how filled your heart is as you watch your sons bonding together. Congratulations on doing such a terrific job with them!

Thanks so much CG. I love hearing about your boys. It always gives me a little glimpse into my monkeys future. May they be as wonderful as yours :)

Alecia June 7, 2010 at 7:56 am

They will be friends for life!

tickledred June 7, 2010 at 10:08 pm

It seems that way…I am hoping that their relationship is always as solid as it is now.

tickledred June 7, 2010 at 10:08 pm

Awww…thanks so much. Yours is a cute guy as well :)

Very cute! Aren’t boys the best?

Red, you are very blessed to have such wonderful children. You can see that your boys have had the best start with a Mom like you a Dad like surfer boy. They will grow into men that you will be more proud of than you thought possible.
Beautiful post with beautiful photos.
:-) Mandy
