Well Deserved Big Brother Respect

All little brothers know that it is important to pay your big brother respect. Well, maybe most little brothers with just a few exceptions.

Is Landon making faces behind his big brother?

Is Landon making faces behind his big brother?

The most interesting change within The Herd with the passing of Natasha has been Frankie’s growth into leadership. He has taken a quiet, unassuming role of mentor to the two wild children – his little brothers Typhoon and Landon. They both appear to give him a great deal of respect – to his face. However, you might be able to spot just a little rebellion behind his back.

Typhoon rolling his eye in a total lack of big brother respect.

    Frankie is a wonderful choice for a mentor! I love his leadership style… quiet, unassuming, but steadfast! Atta boy Frankie Suave!

    Mom sez: I had a feeling right from the start, when you first adopted Frankie into the Herd, that he was destined to “do great things”. He always seemed so much more “adult” than the “wild thangs”, his younger brothers. What Ebby’s “Gramma Deb” calls — “An Old Soul”, as she says Ebby is.

    Maybe Frankie could get some help from Kiska in putting them in their place?
