Happy Birthday, Little Brother!

I’m older than him by 11 years. So I’ve seen him since his infancy. Been mad at him because he wouldn’t stop crying even if I’ve already given him everything. Found time to think during our daily bike ride every afternoon until he fell asleep on the sidecar. Rolled over with laughter for every new trick he learned who-knows-where. Bathed him before going to sunday school.

This is Maki and Me. I think he is two years old here.

It is much easier when he began schooling. He doesn’t need much supervision to learn. He’s the smartest of the siblings. We just need to push him to make his assignments or insist that he review his lessons before the tests, which he thinks is not necessary since he says he knows them all.

Difficult part is when went to college. We’re not used to the idea of not seeing him everyday. He has become the source of laughter in the home, second to dad. We never got used to it.

Today, he’s turned 18. A young man to everyone else but will always be a little brother to me.
