He was my baby brother

Or should I say my only brother.

My parents finally

Got brave enough

To let me babysit for him.


He sits in his chair

At the table as I

Try to convince him

He must eat his lunch.


He looks up at me

With those big baby blue eyes

And delivers his message

Loud and clear…


“YOU are not my Mother


You are not my wife

And I don’t

Have to do anything

YOU tell me to do…..”

He was six.

Hahahaha!! This is such a cute sibling story! I had a baby brother too, so I can relate. I love how you contrast the innocence of his baby blue eyes with his "loud and clear" and rather precocious message!
