The Brothers

The Picture



The Story

Jack has quite the variety of music and entertainment on his iPod thanks to Mark.  One of Jack's favorites is a comedy act by Brian Regan.  I have no idea who the guy is, but his routine is very funny (and clean).  It's so fun to hear Jack laugh while listening to the "Best of Brian Regan".  Eric apparently loves Brian Regan too because when I turned on Jack's iPod and was getting ready for "lights out" for Jack, Eric asked if he could sleep with Jack.  Eric likes to hang out in Jack's room, but he's never asked to sleep with him.  Sure enough, after listening to a little Brian Regan and reading a few chapters of that fine literary work known as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Eric fell asleep in Jack's bed.  It goes down as one of the those sweet moments I will always cherish.

Another sweet brothers' moment is Eric's Valentine's Day card for Jack.  He was filling out his Valentine's Day cards for his class tonight and I found this card lying next to Jack on his bed.





Pretty profound for a 7 year old. I wonder what Eric hopes Jack hopes for?  I'll have to follow-up on that one.

Very sweet valentine, Eric is such a darling! Jack's bed looks pretty comfortable, I can understand why Eric wants to sleep in there :)
