Adventures with Brothers

The second option is Adventure with Brothers (Book 1). This is the first of a series of three books each told from the perspective of one of the three brothers. The first book is told from the perspective of the oldest brother. In each book there will be three short stories. The first story is their adventures riding bikes. The second story is about special Fridays where they go to work with their daddy and their adventure on public transportation. The story here is the last of the three in the first book. It is the story of the older two brothers waiting for their younger brother to be born and to be able to play with them.  These stories target the ages of 3-8. I hope you enjoy it!

 

The Long Wait

Our mama and daddy told us we were going to have a new baby. So we waited and waited and waited.

Then we found out we were going to have a new baby brother.

When mama asked us what we would do with the baby, and my brother said, “Smash the baby!” and then laughed when mama and daddy said, “No, no. We will love the baby.”

So we waited and waited and waited. And Mama’s tummy got bigger and bigger and bigger just like it did with my little brother.

Then one day Mama and Daddy went to the Birth Center and left us with Grandma and Grandpa.

So we waited and waited and waited. Grandpa and Grandma brought us to the center later and we met our new brother. He was small and cried a lot.

When we brought him home we wanted to hold him and kiss him and hug him. We also wanted to play with him, but Mama and Daddy said he was too little.

So we waited and waited and waited. Then one day baby brother started to laugh and laugh. So we danced and jumped and sang. We still wanted to play with him, but Mama and Daddy said he was still too small.

So we waited and waited and waited. Then one day baby brother sat up and didn’t fall down. So we ran and jumped around him. We still wanted to play with him, but Mama and Daddy said he was still too small.

So we waited and waited and waited. Then one day baby brother started to crawl. So we crawled with him. We still wanted to play with him, but Mama and Daddy said he was still too small, but that he was getting bigger.

So we waited and waited and waited. Then one day baby brother started to stand up. So we held his hands and helped him walk. We still wanted to play with him, but Mama and Daddy said he was still too small, but that he would be big enough soon.

So we waited and waited and waited. Then one day baby brother started to walk. So we ran past him showing him how to run. We still wanted to play with him, but Mama and Daddy said he was still too small, but that we needed to wait just a little longer.

So we waited and waited and waited. Then one day baby brother started to run. So we ran with him, and played with him. We rode our balance bikes and kicked balls and played cars. The wait was over and it was worth it. We love our baby brother who isn’t a baby anymore.
