He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother

We had a busy Saturday. Ethan had his Taekwondo taegeuk 4 grading so he had to be in school by 9am. Darling went with Ethan while Ayden and I remained sleeping at home. After taekwondo, Ethan had robotics. While he was in robotic class, Darling came home to pick me and Ayden before fetching Ethan again from school. Immediately after that Darling had an appointment but instead of sending us home, he decided to bring us along to pick up the person he was supposed to meet, drive to a site, continued their discussion in our car before driving her back to her car.

It was Saturday evening. Office is already close so the car became the next best place. 

While Darling was deep in discussion, the boys entertained themselves by monkeying around. I love these pictures I took of them with my phone. 

He aint heavy he is my brother 2

Ayden adores big brother Ethan and I know the feeling is mutual. 

He aint heavy he is my brother 4

Just look at them.

He aint heavy he is my brother 5

Their expression says it all. 

He aint heavy he is my brother 3

Super love this picture. 

He aint heavy he is my brother

Ayden squeezing big bro’s cheek.

He aint heavy he is my brother 6

And planted a big kiss on his sweaty big brother. 

My heart melted seeing these two. After having Ethan, I used to cry thinking why can’t I have another child but miracle happened and we were blessed with Ayden. People always ask me why such big gap between them. I just smile and say, “The timing couldn’t be more perfect”.

He aint heavy he is my brother 7

I am not the best mother around but I must have done something right to deserve these two heroes with the Daddy bundled into the package as well <3

    hahaha….they are so cute! It’s always a joy to see the little siblings played with each other. I just curi curi took a pic of my son and daughter sharing a drink on FB which you liked already. The situation is almost like Ethan and Ayden…. They played, share food and shared a cold ice blended chocolate where they sip together.

    Her? I could have sworn that was a guy! Hehehehehe!!!! Ethan’s lucky I’m not his brother. Muahahahahaha!!!!

      The weather is scorching hot out there. I would have had my hair cut short if my job requires me to be out the entire time too. Hehe.

      By the way, if YOU are Ethan’s brother, then he’ll have to sing to a different tune already. Hahahaha.

    It is so sweet looking at them. I hope they will remain so close forever. :D

      I really hope so too. They only got each other so I hope they’ll learn to treasure each other and remain close as they grow up.

    You’re the best mother for them all. Bless your beautiful family, Merryn! (((‘:

    P/s: Is Ethan a black belt?

    • //

      Thank you babe. Ethan’s not a black belt yet. His grading was for Green 2 and he’ll be Blue already :)

    You really did capture their warm bonding moments together – very good! These photos should be framed on the walls of your home because it shows the love they have for each other.
