Weekend was spent outside with the two kids. While my Second-born was sleeping very well in his stroller, First-born took his time to lecture me with his experience-acquired wisdom. We were sitting on a bench, him on my lap when he suddenly remembered that I was not able to play with him in the playground (I was going after Second-born who is just 18 months old).
Firstborn: Mommy, you don’t play with me anymore. You hurt my feelings.
Me: Anak, I’ll play with you if I can. But you see, your baby brother needs mommy to follow him.
Firstborn: If you continue not playing with me, I do not want to play with you also. When I grow up, you will miss playing with me.
Got you, anak! If only I can play with you all the time…
