Looking After Each Other {The Ordinary Moments}

LP and Little Man are so close. I write in my Siblings post each month that they are as close as they can be without being twins, always in each other’s shadow and constantly wanting to play with the other one, be with them and even having sleepovers in each other’s room at home.

They love each other fiercely and part of this love is that they are always helping each other, doing things for them and looking after them. Throughout a normal day I will see LP and Little Man fetching things for the other one, sharing things with them, helping them to reach things, thinking of an idea to make something easier for them or giving them a cuddle when they’re sad.

But outside of the house they walk together, run together and hold hands. Doing everything they can to keep each other safe. When we go on days out they would rather hold their sibling’s hand than ours and although Little Man is twenty months younger than LP he looks out for her as much as she looks out for him. We are always hearing him call “Watch out sister!” and she is just the same to him. And yes, he calls her sister more than he calls her by his name – I think we have only heard him say her name twice so far!

LP and Little Man are so close, I can’t imagine one without the other and with the way they look after each other it’s easy to see that they couldn’t imagine not having the other one around either. I hope that when they’re two years apart at secondary school they’ll still talk to each other, walk down the road together and be friends, always looking out for each other.

  2. Aw this is just lovely 🙂 My eldest hated his baby brother for quite a long time and mostly tolerated him as toddlers, thankfully these days they are best friends and really look out for each other…. when they aren’t trying to kill each other 😉
