Siblings

R & B can sometimes get into quite a number of tiffs and spats. R is the typical oldest child - very responsible, but erring on the side of bossy sometimes. And B is the typical pesky little brother. Jay and I have had our share of times where we are forced to act as mediator between the two.

And then, there are other days that, when push comes to shove, they are fiercely loyal to one another, and will care for each other like no other.

I came into the room after doing a load of laundry the other day to find this scene. B had apparently fallen down while riding his bike, and scraped his arm. R, being the sweet, responsible older sister that she is, made sure to dress the wound, cover it with his favorite bandages, wrap him in a blanket, give him his favorite toy to hold, and hold his hand as he "endured" the pain. (After further inspection, there wasn't even any blood... it never broke the skin) ha ha.

Still, it was a sweet expression of a sister's love and care... :o)
