Advantage of Having A New Brother

Typhoon has figured out the big advantage of having a new brother, especially when you have a little reputation already established.

And it is quite an advantage.

And it is quite an advantage.

Typhoon has both loved having a new playmate in the yard and disliked having to share the attention he always received as the “Baby Boy.” As Landon has settled into life with The Herd, Typhoon has also figured out the best part of having a new brother. Especially when that brother is so new that he makes lots of mistakes learning the rules of life within The Herd.

Someone else gets the automatic blame.

Yes, we caught Typhoon grinning after hearing “Landon, stop it,” for the eleventy-seventh bazillion time yesterday.
